Nurses and midwives!

Not really sure where to post this. But for all the nurses and midwives tell me about your job, your favourite parts and least favourite. 
I'm really interested in becoming a nurse and then later doing midwifery. I'm doing a course in TAFE (I'm from Australia) next year for 18 months instead of completing year 12. After I do this course if I pass, I get direct entry into a uni where ill do a nursing course again for 18 months and learn all the more important stuff. Then I plan to apply to the nursing and midwifery board to do midwifery which will be an 18 month course opposed to being 3 years if you haven't done nursing prior. I'm so excited to start this path of my life and can't wait to finish this last year of school and start my career.
