Nursing grad Chloe will remember her grandad every day on the ward

Nursing grad Chloe will remember her grandad every day on the ward

CQUniversity Nursing graduate Chloe Roff gained financial support through the Arrow Energy Go Further Indigenous Scholarships program.

CQUniversity Nursing graduate Chloe Roff still misses her grandad, who spent three years on dialysis before passing away.

Now she’s in a great position to ‘give back’ in his memory, as she’s starting her career as a registered nurse in the Renal Ward at Bundaberg Base Hospital in January.

“Nursing enables me to offer patients a shoulder to cry on or a friendly smile … the opportunity to give back is my motivation to enter the profession,” she says.

Chloe managed to juggle her study and clinical placements with her role as mother to a daughter who is only just past the toddler years.

She did so with financial support through the Arrow Energy Go Further Indigenous Scholarships program, developed in partnership with CQUniversity.

“The Arrow Energy Scholarship has provided much-needed financial relief while I have been completing the compulsory practical placements required for my degree,” Chloe says.

“It has allowed me to focus on my studies with the added stress of financial burdens.

“Some placements can last between two to six weeks, and without the Arrow Energy Scholarship I would have been unable to complete these compulsory practices as the financial burden would have been too much.”
