I have loved nursing from an early age. Nursing is not just looking after a patient but taking the responsibility for someone’s life and gaining their trust which I don’t think is easy. Before joining SCEI, I was studying my Diploma of Health Science at Deakin University. A friend recommended SCEI to me. I chose SCEI as it is close to my house and it has a smaller class size. This helped teachers to give more attention to students. At SCEI I have learned skills to become a nurse and developed a lot of self-confidence.What I like best about the course is that it is only two days a week. This way I can study for two days and work rest of the week. I enjoyed our lab sessions, and we could practice as many times as we want until we are confident. I am currently doing my Bachelors at ACU, this will help me achieve my dream to become a Registered Nurse.
Nursing was always something I wanted to pursue as I always wanted a career where I could help people. Nursing provides you with so many different options and pathways.
Prior to completing the Diploma of Nursing I completed the Certificate III in Aged Care at SCEI and was working in a wonderful aged care facility. I learnt a wide range of Nursing skills and theory during my time at SCEI, the most important lesson was on how to care for people holistically.
Having classes only two days a week made it easy for me to work, travel, spend time with my family and study. I enjoyed my time at my practical work placements and got the opportunity to work with a diverse workplace. I plan to continue my studies by going to University to complete my Bachelor of Nursing.
