Bachelor of Nursing (Fast-track)

After working for 15 years in the fashion industry, I was interested in a profession where I could learn at a personal and professional level with compassion and a level of care. Attending university and studying nursing was the only way that I could put all of these components together.

I chose to study at the University of Tasmania because it is one of the best universities in Australia, and it provides a great environment for multi-cultural students. The University of Tasmania also provides a fast-track course in nursing which is unique, flexible and provides great theoretical and practical learning to students.

My highlight of studying at the University of Tasmania would definitely be the professional relationships that I've built with hospitals in Sydney while studying. The flexible study options are great as well!

When I graduate I would like to be a registered nurse. I hope to gain employment with the St Vincent's hospital in Sydney, and thanks to the fast-track option, this should be a reality very soon.

My advice for future students is to be focused in what you choose to study. Give it your best, utilise your time, and never give up.
