I'm in my first year of a nursing degree at Charles Darwin University. I am doing this degree so that I can eventually become a rural/remote nurse, preferably something that involves a lot of flying.
You'd think that studying at CDU would set me up for an excellent start towards my goal but I have been warned off doing the remote elective as the placements are so bad?????
This was ultimatly why I moved to Darwin to study and thus I am a little annoyed but never mid, I'm on my way.
I will be heading down to Brisbane after I complete my degree and was wondering how I would go about obtaining my goal. Is there any specific things I should do. I saw there was a masters in Aviation nursing. While that sounds interesting a masters is many years away at the present. Is competition high for these types of roles. Once qualified what should I do to give me the best possible chance of getting there. I'm guessing emergency, trauma, or critical (or all of them).
What do those in the know think?
