Flinders is a leader in academic research and teachers are very knowledgeable. The best thing about my course was my clinical placement as it gave me a comprehensive understanding of the Australian health system. Adelaide also has a beautiful natural environment, a safe and social atmosphere and is very multicultural.
It’s great to be so close to Flinders Medical Centre, where we’re able to follow women through their pregnancy. I particularly like the fact the Flinders nursing and midwifery facilities are so up-to-date. They’re very similar to the real hospital environment, so it’s fantastic to be able to get hands on with real-life equipment from early on in the course.
Working in a hospital setting throughout the degree backed up and helped put into practice what I’d learned; it pulled everything together. I’m very passionate about nursing, and about making a hard time for some people a little brighter.
