Flexibility to study Nursing and help others
Louise was inspired to study nursing by her parents, who are both registered nurses.
However, as a mother, she knew she wouldn’t be able to study full time while juggling work and family.
The flexibility, part-time options and blended learning provided through Notre Dame’s Diploma of Nursing gave Louise the opportunity to pursue nursing.
“Notre Dame offers a lot of help for students like me. As a mother I thought I would not be able to study anymore."
Speaking of the Broome Campus Louise says that she loves “everything” and the support of academic staff have been central to her experience.
"I have developed so much as a person in maturity, decision-making, time-management and being organised.”
At this stage, Louise doesn’t have a particular area in nursing that she'd like to specialise in, rather she is keen to work “anywhere as long as I care for people.”
