To quote one of our current nurses:

“In medicine, we often nurse critical patients. We have good nurse to patient ratios, so that we can deliver exceptional patient care. We are lucky that we have the time to deeply connect to our patients. They become long term clients who we enjoy seeing again and again which is very rewarding. We also get the time to advance our skills with nurse training provided by our department. We see a bit of everything which is rewarding and never boring! We get a mix of hospital care and anaesthesia and have the luxury of anaesthesia specialists to help during tough anaesthetics”
