Zoe Server, Bachelor of Nursing student

Placements are integrated into your studies rather than being an intensive block. You might learn how to administer injections to patients and the next day you could have a hospital placement shift and are able to apply that skill. I have predominantly remained at the same hospital throughout my degree, which has allowed me to foster critical relationships with members of the healthcare team.
