Discipline specific knowledge is only one of the many benefits of pursuing an undergraduate degree. However, this knowledge alone is not enough to prepare you for entering the world of work. You will discover that the content of your degree does not restrict your job opportunities.
Being aware of the transferable skills you've developed throughout your studies will better prepare you for entering the job market and allow you to articulate the skills that are so valued by employers.
You will be providing care for people of all ages and backgrounds. You should be able to put people at their ease, gain their confidence and deal sympathetically with their problems and fears.
Communication and observation are crucial to good nursing. You need to be a good at listening as well as talking and you have to be constantly alert to changes in patients' conditions and the implications in terms of care.
The ability to learn, understand and interpret information and apply knowledge to new situations
As a nurse you will be part of a multidisciplinary team that includes doctors, physiotherapists, anaesthetists, pharmacists, dietitians and many more. You need to know how all these different people work together.
