Hi all,

I'm just wondering.. Can first year nursing students work in the health industry? I'm beginning uni mid year, and would like to get started working in the industry.. Are there any jobs available, without having to complete your first placements, or first year of uni? Any info you have would be appreciated.

It is not good for you to do a job at the mid of the year. You are not capable of doing this type of job. According to me you should complete you degree and then try for the job. After completion of your study you will feel confident and have an enough knowledge for the job.

Hi FutureRN16,

from what I've heard, it's possible to get work as an AIN while an undergrad, but when I google "undergrad nurse jobs" they all seem to want 2nd or 3rd years. Perhaps contact a nursing agency in your area and ask what's the earliest you could apply to join them?

Where will you be studying?

cheers,

ratty.

Thankyou ratty for your reply... I will call around a few places and see what the best approach is. I'll be studying at JCU Townsville, beginning mid year. I'm a hemodialysis patient, so I'll also ask the nursing staff about working as a renal AIN, whilst studying. Thanks again for your info :)

Hi Future RN16,

I am currently studying to be an EN part time, but have been told that once I complete my first year I will be eligible to work in Aged Care.
This may not exactly fit what you are looking for, but it might be worth looking into.
There is also possibly PCA work?
