Chris Patterson: I think the Honours program is really worth considering. It really can set people up for their future career in nursing. It's a year full-time, two-years part time, and I think it's really worth thinking about if you have a particular area of interest you want to research.
Taylor Yousiph: I used to read papers and articles and not really understand them very well; during the Honours year though, and doing the systematic review just had a great opportunity to be able to learn how to synthesise that evidence, to read it, to understand it, and be able to even integrate that into practice.
Chris Patterson: After a number of years as a clinical practice nurse, a lot of nurses do look for those higher management or clinical consultant or education positions, and an Honours degree really is a solid foundation that boosts you into those positions and helps you drive change in an evidence-based way for the future.
Taylor Yousiph: The research skills that you develop in an Honours degree are skills that will set you up for a really privileged nursing career in the future. It's just such an amazing experience, so I would encourage anybody to do it. It's what I would end with.
