Nursing combines compassion, knowledge, and sophisticated health technology to restore, maintain, and promote the health of individuals, groups, or communities. Nursing is both an art and a science: caring, compassionate relationships blended with the development and application of nursing knowledge, techniques and ethics.
As a Wits nursing student, you will study in a rigorous and vibrant multidisciplinary environment that will stimulate your intellectual inquiry and professional responsiveness. You will learn in small groups and engage in cooperative learning as you work through real-life health scenarios, deciding how to access information that produces the best results in managing health issues.
Nurses practice in a range of settings, including hospitals, community clinics, industry, the military, private practices, homes, and in specialised areas such as hospice and rehabilitation and aged care facilities.
Wits also offers opportunities for further study in nursing.
