Nursing

Careers in Nursing

A Registered Nurse could focus on mental health, child health, aged care, oncology (cancer), community health, primary health care or workplace health and safety. Or maybe the fast paced nursing in intensive care or the operating theatre is for you. Your day will be spent planning and carrying out nursing care in your specialist area, monitoring patients, recording important changes in patient conditions, giving medication and intravenous drugs, checking equipment and supplies or educating patients and their families about health care needs.

As an Enrolled Nurse, you will work across a range of healthcare institutions instead of choosing a specialist area. You will work under the supervision of a registered nurse to care for and educate patients in rehabilitation, acute care, aged care and mental health.

Your study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. You will have the chance to care for your own patients and learn about the industry through putting classroom learning into practice. And our dedicated and experienced staff will be there to guide you every step of the way.

If you don’t meet the entry requirements to the courses, we offer two Certificates in Introduction to Study that will help prepare you for enrolment in the programme.

We also have further study options such as postgraduate and master qualifications if you’re looking for opportunity for role development in the nursing industry. See our available postgraduate qualifications or email us at pghsp@wintec.ac.nz if you have any questions.
