5 inside tips about studying nursing at the University of Sydney

First-year Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) student Mackenzie O’Toole agreed to answer 15 questions about studying nursing at the University of Sydney, including why she chose it, what she likes about it, and what surprised her most about university life.

5 reasons to study nursing at the University of Sydney

University of Sydney Nursing School

Here, Mackenzie discusses the five things she enjoys about studying nursing at the University of Sydney. To check out the full list, watch the video below, “15 questions with nursing student Mackenzie O’Toole.”

1. Where is the best spot at Sydney Nursing School?

Mackenzie’s favourite spot at Sydney Nursing School are the clinical simulation labs (SIM labs). The SIM labs are home to full-body manikins installed with the latest simulation technology. They provide a safe environment where students like Mackenzie can practice and improve their clinical skills while developing their confidence in the procedures they are learning in lectures.

Through simulated learning, students become proficient at

  • taking blood pressure
  • checking a pulse
  • listening to breath
  • heart and bowel sounds
  • dressing wounds
  • preparing and administering medications
  • conducting interviews, and
  • documenting patient information.

2. Why she chose a nursing degree

When asked why she chose a nursing degree, Mackenzie’s main reason was “to help others in need.” Nurses make a genuine difference to people’s lives. Mackenzie was also inspired by the nursing care she received when she contracted meningitis at just three months of age, an event that left her with hearing loss in one ear. Her passion for helping others grew from that point on. She wanted to treat others with the same care she had received.

3. How quickly she was able to undertake a placement

Mackenzie was amazed by how soon into her degree she was able to gain real-world experience in her placement. She was placed at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, which is located only blocks away from the university campus.

From the first year of the Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) degree, students gain invaluable practical experience through 880 hours of clinical placements across a wide variety of healthcare settings including emergency departments, intensive care units, paediatric units, mental health facilities and community health centres. Students also have the opportunity to undertake a clinical placement overseas.

4. How supportive her lecturers have been

Sydney Nursing School offers students a supportive environment in which to learn. They are taught by leading academics, clinicians and researchers who are part of the nursing and healthcare community. Mackenzie found her lecturers to be “amazingly supportive.”

Helping students from day one through to graduation, the University of Sydney has a network of services, facilities and experts to make university experience as smooth and rewarding as possible.

5. How much she loves working with different people

As highly trained and valued professionals, nurses work with a diverse range of people, including other healthcare professionals and patients from all walks of life. Mackenzie has loved how she has been able to study and work alongside people from a diverse range of backgrounds from around Australia and the world.

Students learn how to thrive in complex health environments and will build an understanding of how to work with other health professionals to provide the highest quality patient-centered care.

University of Newcastle Three Minute Thesis winner

Countless hours of research were condensed into bite-sized portions as postgraduate students took part in the University of Newcastle final of the national/trans-Tasman Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on July 23.

Eighteen postgraduate researchers each had just 180 seconds and a single presentation slide to summarise their thesis for a non-specialist audience.

Study nursing at the University of Newcastle

The 3MT Newcastle final provided the crowd with a unique insight into the innovative studies being undertaken by the university’s higher degree students, while also enhancing participants’ presentation and communication skills.

Among the finalists were nutrition and dietetics student, Lee Ashton, whose presentation detailed his investigation into the health and lifestyle issues faced by men aged 18 to 25. Lee’s research addresses the culture of poor health surrounding the demographic, with the aim of developing tailored healthy lifestyle programs for young men.

Newcastle Nursing School student Joanne Harmon shared how her thesis explores the communication barriers between nurses and elderly patients, and their influence on the effectiveness of pain management in hospitals along Australia’s east coast.

In the process of completing a PhD in Chemical Engineering, Emad Nemhelal presented his thesis involving how to reduce the effects of global warming through the capture and solidification of carbon dioxide, while fellow finalist Nursing PhD student Gary Crowfoot divulged his findings on the accessibility of stroke prevention measures for Australian patients, and talked his way into the final round of the National/Trans-Tasman Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, overcoming stiff competition from 17 fellow UON postgraduate researchers.

A panel comprised of Newcastle City Councillor Nuatali Nelmes, co-founder of Slingshot Trent Bagnall and CEO of HunterNet Tony Cade were on hand to judge the event.

The University of Newcastle winner Gary Crowfoot will compete at the national/trans-Tasman final hosted by the University of Western Australia in November.

The School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Newcastle is one of four schools within the Faculty of Health. The school has an innovative approach to undergraduate and graduate teaching, and enjoys close collaboration with local area health services in providing clinical learning experiences for students, in the provision of graduate programs and in the conduct of clinical research.

OzTREKK Funny Friday

nursing assistant, a  floor nurse, and a charge nurse from a small nursing home were taking a lunch break in the break room. A lady dressed elegantly in silk scarves and glittering jewellery entered the room.

“I am Gina the Great,” stated the lady. “I am so pleased with the way you have taken care of my aunt that I will now grant the next three wishes!”

With a wave of her hand and a puff of smoke, the room was filled with flowers, fruit and bottles of drink, proving that she did have the power to grant wishes before any of the nurses could think otherwise.

The nurses quickly argued among themselves as to which one would ask for the first wish.

Speaking up, the nursing assistant wished first: “I wish I were on a tropical island beach, with single, well-built men feeding me fruit and tending to my every need.”

With a puff of smoke, the nursing assistant was gone.

The floor nurse spoke next: “I wish I were rich and retired and spending my days in my own warm cabin at a ski resort with well-groomed men feeding me cocoa and doughnuts.”

With a puff of smoke, she too was gone.

“Now, what is the last wish?” asked the lady.

The charge nurse glared at Gina and said, “I want those two back on the floor by the end of the lunch break.”

About Australian Nursing Schools

Canadian and Australian nursing programs at the university level are similar. To become a registered nurse, you need to complete a Bachelor of Nursing degree, or you can undertake a general undergraduate degree and then progress into a two-year, graduate-entry master’s degree.

A police officer was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well; however, the officer kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest.

Australian Nursing Schools

Beware of the sharp attack!

Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctors hadn’t told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down far enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable.

Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn’t come off easily.

Written in large black letters was the sentence—

“Get well quick. With love, from the nurse you gave a ticket to last week.”

OzTREKK Funny Friday

Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged.

Up for the challenge, a student nurse found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting at the edge of the bed with a suitcase at his feet.

When told by the nurse that he would need to sit in the wheelchair to be taken down to the exit, he insisted he didn’t need help to leave the hospital.

After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let the student nurse wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, she asked him if his wife was meeting him.

“I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”
