I am a busy Mum of 2, so it was important for me to choose a University that allowed me to effectively balance my study with all of my other work and life commitments without compromising the quality of the degree.
I am currently working as a Registered Nurse in a busy emergency department. I am always learning in this role, and one of the things that I love most about my job is that each day will bring a new set of challenges and new opportunities to learn from the experienced staff around me.
The biggest highlight of my career has been graduating with distinction, and gaining my first preference nursing position in a highly sought after clinical area. Sharing my experience of graduation with my children showed when you dedicate yourself to something and work hard, there is excitement and celebration at the end.
Don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t capable of great things. Remember not to compare yourself to others, stay focused on your own journey, and always remember why you started. Be fearless in your pursuits, if you aren’t given an opportunity then it’s up to you to create one.
