So i thinking of doing a diploma of Nursing which upon completion will mean i would be an enrolled nurse.
I'm wondering if anyone who has done the course or in an EN could offer me some insight into it all.
One of the main things i want to know is when you get into nursing do you become somewhat desensitized to the gross and gory aspects of the job (vomitt, poo, blood, etc,)?
Is nursing a family friendly career? Is it possible to work only day shifts?
Or do they expect those fresh out of TAFE/Uni to do the undesirable night shifts?
What sort of jobs would you typicallly be doing as an EN and what is pay like?
I noticed you have to get your immunisations up to date when commencing the course and apparently it can cost up to $450? Is that really so and what exactly do you having to get immunised against?
