Positives: 1. It develops students problem-solving skills, because you need to cope with a lot of assignment and figure out how to do it. Flinders University provides a lot of student support services, and you can use those sources to assist yourself. For example, student learning center... etc.
Negatives: As an international student, I found out we pay too much to gain a degree, and the course does not make me feel worthy to pay. For example, I only have one class every week, but I have to pay $3800 for total six classes. so costly
My advice to future students is: Preparing your English skills, because it is really important for your course involving discussion with your classmate.
Positives: It covered a very broad range of topics, an was extremely flexible as far as offering on-line subjects and 2 week summer courses
Negatives: It was not very flexible in the topics that could be chosen...a majority of topics were core topics with no room for movement. The job prospects afterwards are not huge.
My advice to future students is: Ensure this course I going to suit all of your needs. There are different streams so choose wisely to ensure it is going to be everything you want it to be, as there is not much flexibility within the streams
Negatives: Not practical
My advice to the uni is: Please provide more details on Critical thinking

Negatives: The knowledge we get from class is not enough for placement
My advice to future students is: Study hard, take good notes
Positives: -Get to learn new things
- interesting health and science topics
- variety career options as well as post graduate opportunities
Negatives: - For certain topics, the way the material is provided is poor ie theres not enough lectures or tutorials

- some practicals are a waste of time
My advice to future students is: Do a course that you love and you have the motivation to drive yourself
Positives: Registered nurse entry is a 1-year addition for those who have studied midwifery or in another medical field. The 1-year course consists of hands-on lectures and tutorials building upon the skills that have already been attained through previous learning. This course sets you up to be able to successfully transition from the current position into the nursing field.
Negatives: The placement process required for completion of the course can be challenging. Especially juggling full-time work around the hours required for successful completion. This is made especially hard when the placement needs to be in a different hospital from one in which you are employed.
My advice to future students is: If you have the chance to study this course it will benefit you greatly in the medical field as it gives you the skills necessary to work as a registered nurse. The tutorials and lectures are up to date with current practice.
Positives: The bachelor of midwifery was an excellent course that provided hands-on learning in a hospital setting for those wishing to get into the medical field. Students were given opportunities for various placements in Adelaide hospitals to practice and get a first account learning on what the position of a midwife entails. The lectures and staff were relevant and supportive and provided all the up to date research required.
Negatives: The only negative of the course was students had to arrange their own follow-through participants and had to have a set number by each year. This required going to hospitals and approaching expecting mothers if it would be alright to follow through their pregnancy. If you are a shy person, this can be quite challenging.
My advice to future students is: The midwifery course is a great course to study at Flinders. The staff were supportive and will guide you in the direction of best practice. I would research job prospects after finishing as what is stated by the university as needing midwives isn't necessarily the case and finding employment can be a struggle.
