just wanted to say good luck to everyone starting dip nursing this year.
I am six months into mine and now that I have settled in to it I really love it!! My advice so far ( as someone a teeny tiny bit further down the road) is to try not stress and focus on learning not just passing..
.and keep a open mind in regards to aged care...even if aged care is not your thing a great deal of elderly people access all types of Heath services including acute hospitals so to develop an understanding and respect for the elderly is a valuable thing I am a little biased I already work in aged care and love it....the thought of paediatrics or working with kids scares the life outta me but I love my oldies (not implying that there is anything wrong with not liking aged care)
Does anyone have a plan for what kinds area of nursing hey want to work in? I would love to get some skills in acute or rehab but I also like aged care.
Good luck everyone and of there is any already registered ENs that would like to impart some advice that would be great
