What is a nurse?

A nurse is a highly skilled health care professional who combines the art of caring with scientific knowledge and skills developed through their education and career.

Nursing can be a life long career which is recognised world wide and which will enable you to take advantage of an international nursing career.

A nurse is involved in the education of patients around health and disease processes, health promotion activities, clinical procedures and management of nursing processes.

Nursing enables you to work in a diverse range of settings including hospitals, community settings, general practices, prisons, homes and residential settings.

There is also a diverse range of areas of practice which a nurse may choose to work in.
