Diploma of Nursing
It's a very supportive environment that really keeps you on track with the expectations of the industry we'll be joining.
I am honest. I am caring. I am a team player.
The practical experience you get during clinical placements has been the real highlight of my program so far. There are some aspects of nursing you can only learn in the field and it really brings everything I’ve learned in the classroom into focus.
The classroom work has also provided valuable background to the placements. Clinical lab sessions and advanced simulations gave me the skills and confidence to do it in the real world. I can see why RMIT has the glowing reputation I’d heard about: it’s a very supportive environment that really keeps you on track with the expectations of the industry we’ll be joining.
It started to come together during the Complex Nursing Care of Clients course where all the theoretical background we’d been working on in other units came together in a whole and a series of penny-dropping moments made so many elements of why we do what do in the way we do it clear to me.
I began working in aged care after starting my program. I gained the job through glowing recommendations from our clinical educator to the facility about me during our two week placement there and they offered me the job.
Caring for people is an important part of who I am and becoming an enrolled nurse is just the next step of what I hope will be a long career in health.
I love what I do because I can make a difference to someone’s life while they’re in a vulnerable state and can provide and ear and a shoulder to patients who need it.
