Positive - the course itself was very in depth. I was never left in the dark when I needed the extra help.
Negative - practical side was good, but was complicated when organising what hospital I was allocated to do pracs
My advice to future students is: Keep an open mind & enjoy!
Positives: Plenty of opportunities to gain experience in a variety of different clinical settings.
Negatives: time restraints, putting all deadlines for assignments within a close time frame. Sometimes it felt like we were not given enough time to practice our clinical skills
My advice to future students is: dont leave things to last minute. attend the practice labs. read ahead of class
Positives: Good teaching staff, placements were met, good uni facilities (practice lab)
Negatives: 3rd year subjects were based in kurringai campus
My advice to future students is: Nursing in UTS is a smart choice especially if you want to go into the paediatric setting as its in partnership with the Sydney children’s hospital network
Positives: Good campus
Simulation of Learning is High tech
Negatives: Far location
Higher number of students
My advice to future students is: Study in advance and focus more on practicals than theories...
Negatives: Assignments making criteria are so confusing
My advice to future students is: Read instructions thoroughly
Positives: At UTS there a new lab facilities which are fantastic to learn in! The teachers are amazing as well. I love the practical side of nursing it’s so engaging.
Negatives: The classes are a smaller size so depending on the individuals that are in the class the contribution can at times be minimal which I find effects the way I learn.
Maths is a huge part of the nursing course which at times I struggle with.
My advice to future students is: Continuously review your notes and keep on top of what you learn on a week to week basis so that once exams come it’s second nature. Consult with the lecturers.
