What I loved most about studying at UniSA was the incredible staff, especially those that work at the Whyalla Campus and the facilities we have available. The main reason I’d suggest studying regionally is the class sizes. There’s a limited number which means you have more opportunity to get to know your tutor and are provided with a bit more support.

“The Bachelor of Nursing has definitely helped me put that practice in to my work. While on placement, I’ve certainly learned to build my confidence and building rapport with patients. You’re getting to know someone different every day – different diagnoses, different past medical histories, different medication. We’re here to look after them and we want the best outcome for them.
