Hi, I'm a former male nurse and I'm not sure of the requirements in Australia, but in California there is a lot of waiting. Literally. The waiting lists are very long, unless you go through a private/skills college which are expensive, and often not even recognized!!!


As for the work itself, it is very open. Meaning, there are many opportunities where you can find your niche. I was just a general areas nurse that worked for a registry, where they would place me somewhere different every day. I worked 12 hour shifts, which mostly went by very quickly, but sometimes I did have some slow spots. It paid well, but I did burn out very quickly.


If it's something you have wanted to do since a child, go for it!! Through the coursework, I hope you find if it really is for you or not. That way you can decide before wasting time and energy if it isn't for you
