How to enrol

Lisa Levi

Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled-Division 2 Nursing)

Life's good in Cairns. It’s great hanging out on the campus with lots of people from all over the world. It’s not hard to make friends here, once you say hello to people they open up to you and be friendly and want to hang out. There are lots of beaches and beautiful restaurants and cafes, I like to go out and have dinner or have barbeques on the beach and go swimming. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
