Sonography student Nikki Harris has landed a role with Global Diagnostics Australia based in Perth

When Nikki Lee Harris started her university journey in Mackay, Queensland – she certainly never expected to complete her degree in Perth.

“I started studying the Bachelor of Medical Sonography through CQUni the year after I graduated from high school and attended the Mackay campus throughout my degree,” Harris said.

The 21 year-old has now officially completed her four-year degree and landed a permanent position with a leading provider of diagnostics imaging in Western Australia.

“I completed my final year of clinical placement in Perth and now that I’m qualified, I have been lucky enough to receive a job offer from Global Diagnostics where I completed clinical placement over the past year,” Harris said.

“I’ve enjoyed every moment at Global Diagnostics. Everyone was so welcoming and the whole team was very invested in my learning and development as a student sonographer.”

Harris said she was very much looking forward to getting started in a career she had worked so hard to achieve.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the degree - it has definitely presented its challenges but I’ve learnt so much along the way and it’s something I’ve come to be very passionate about, which I feel makes all the hard yards worth it,” she said.

“Growing up, I was always intrigued by the human body and how it works and knew I wanted a career in the medical/health/science field and I’m so glad I am here today.”
