This course has allowed me to gain a much better understanding of the nursing profession and has been a great stepping stone into the industry. I’ve enjoyed every moment of the course. My experience on my first aged-care placement was one I’m truly grateful for, as I was given the space to learn and participate in everyday life at the hostel.
