These immersive workshops provide Years 10 - 12 students with an opportunity to explore real-world examples of study, skills and careers in the areas of health and medicine.

Students will learn to check vital signs, dress a wound, use PPE and how to provide basic life support. Students will work through real-life scenarios with our team of academics and students and have the opportunity ask questions about studying at UTAS and career pathways in Nursing.

As a Registered Nurse you can have a lifelong and rewarding career in a huge range of areas including emergency medicine, surgery, and mental health. There are many opportunities for future career progression, plus, you’ll make a real difference in the quality of life for your community.
