"Everyone is so supportive and I can't put a price on what they've taught me so far. I’ve learned so much in five months, and had the chance to work with a diverse range of patients and families,” Brianna said.
“The support you receive in the program is everything you need as a new nurse.”
Brianna who joined the graduate program five months ago is currently working across the surgical ward at Gosford Private Hospital and said that the support she has received in the Healthe Care Central Coast Graduate Program has been far more intensive compared to previous placements.
“I’ve gained the skills to handle complex situations and communicate with a diverse range of patients and families. I’ve definitely found I’ve been able to access more practical on the job training,” she said.
Brianna hopes to work in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) someday, as she prefers to work closely with individual patients and their loved ones.
“I think working in ICU will be challenging and give me an opportunity to work one-on-one with patients and their families,” she said,
“As a new nurse, I recommend saying yes to as many opportunities as possible. This program has been a great training ground for me." - Brianna, 21, Woongarrah, Healthe Care Graduate Program participant
"Becoming a nurse in such a difficult period of time had many challenges, but all the challenges faced were overcome with the support from everyone around me," she said.
"I was so grateful to have such a great team at the hospital to guide me through everything. Everyone was so patient and my advice for future students would be work as an Assistant in Nursing (AIN) during your study if you can because you can so much extra useful knowledge working in that clinical setting.
"Also never be afraid to ask for help or support, everyone is so happy to help you if you show them you are keen and always be open to gaining friendships and finding the fun along the way.
"I have learnt so very much, met so many beautiful nurses and was able to put everything into practice and I had the best time doing it all!" - Emily 22, Nursing Scholarship Recipient 2020
