Positives: 1) the support you get is amazing. A few people have been to other units and they’ve said ACU support and connection with students is amazing which it is
2) the content is informal. Although it may be boring they make sure you know it to be a better future nurse
3) not sure if it’s like this in other unis but we start placement for nursing home next semester and it’s good to start early and learn early in the prac field

Negatives: At the moment there's nothing I can point out

My advice to future students is: It’s an amazing uni and really accessible. Parking is always found and it’s FREE!!! It is a small uni compared to others but offers just as much

Positives: I’ve met so many people who love doing what I want to do. The work is challenging but informative. Everyone is there to help you achieve your best

Negatives: There are unrealistic due dates set for assignments, the assignments can sometimes feel pointless as it is of a topic you wouldn’t normally be teaching

My advice to future students is: Start everything the minute you get it otherwise it can become very overwhelming and stressful very quickly. Put all your effort in as this is your future job you are preparing for. A half assed job will only affect you in the end
