Not sure if a career in health is right for you? Let us help you decide. Here are 7 reasons why you should start your caring career with a qualification from VFA Learning.
Demand is growing for nurses
With an ageing population, the rising cost of treatment and more recently, COVID-19, it’s clear that a well-resourced healthcare system is required to maintain the wellbeing of our community. People are interested in living well, meaning nurses, personal trainers, massage therapists and other health professionals are in high demand.
VFA’s Diploma of Nursing means you’ll graduate as an Enrolled Nurse and is perfect for anyone who’s driven to help those in need.
“The things I enjoyed most about VFA was the trainers that we had, says Jayde Di Blasio, VFA Nursing graduate. They’re all currently working in the field and up-to-date with their training. They were super encouraging and always pushing us to do our best.”
