F.Doherty Testimonial 149X149 PMP Landing Page

Felicity Doherty

Perioperative nursing graduate

I work closely with surgeons, anaesthetists and nurses to provide gold standard care and I enjoy working closely with patients as I support and guide them through an environment that can seem, at times, intimidating and overwhelming.

E.Schroder Testimonial 149X149 PMP Landing Page

Emma-Rose Schroder

Critical care nursing graduate

My current job is working as a critical care nurse in the ICU. I work at the bedside in direct contact with the patient and their family and friends. I like being hands-on, busy and using critical thinking to guide my practice. I like being physically and mentally challenged and working in ICU does just that for me.

M.Tweedie Testimonial 149X149 PMP Landing Page

Megan Tweedle

Postgraduate nursing graduate

Conducting my degree in affiliation with Austin Health has ensured that my clinical skills learnt were implemented into practice. Either one in isolation would not have optimised the learning experience that I obtained. I could really develop my clinical knowledge at Deakin and then apply them into practice at work.

Graduate ready for the jobs of tomorrow
