Meet Susan Hua

As a nurse, Susan was keen to learn more about psychotherapeutic interventions, so she enrolled in RMIT's Graduate Diploma of Mental Health Nursing.

Being able to provide the right level of care can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

The level of care required for people with mental illness can be complex and challenging, which was why I wanted to specialise in the field.

I was particularly interested in RMIT’s Graduate Diploma of Mental Health Nursing as the course had a strong focus on psychotherapeutic interventions.

I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to learn in a specialised field. I felt relaxed and supported throughout the course, because our educators were very understanding of our needs.

I’m currently working as a mental health nurse – being able to work with, and support someone on their recovery journey is very rewarding to me.

My advice to prospective students is to talk to your employer and educators, as you will need support in maintaining a healthy work life balance while studying. There is a lot of support available!

I’m committed to and passionate about making a difference in people’s lives.

In the future, I’d love to keep studying, write a book, travel and do a PHD.
