OzTREKK Funny Friday

A police officer was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well; however, the officer kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest.

Beware of the sharp attack!
Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctors hadn’t told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down far enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable.

Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn’t come off easily.

Written in large black letters was the sentence—

“Get well quick. With love, from the nurse you gave a ticket to last week.”

About Australian Nursing Schools

Canadian and Australian nursing programs at the university level are similar. To become a registered nurse, you need to complete a Bachelor of Nursing degree, or, alternatively, you can undertake a general undergraduate degree and then progress into a two-year, graduate-entry master’s degree.

The graduate-entry nursing master’s degrees offered by OzTREKK's Australian Nursing Schools are intended for university graduates with a degree in an area other than nursing who wish to train for a career in nursing.
