Nursing is considered one of the most rewarding careers with its main focus on people so if you consider yourself to be motivated by helping others and you have the right combination of personality and professionalism then this may be the career for you. 

Nursing is the study, both theory and practical, focusing on the care of individuals, families and communities when they are sick or injured. Being considered as one of the most highly regarded professions a nurse combines both the empathy and art of caring with the appropriate technical skills and knowledge.

Nurses can work in a whole range of workplaces going far beyond hospitals, including in aged care, intensive care and community mental health or can specialise in particular conditions such as cancer or diabetes.
