Achievers in Nursing"The best thing about my job at St Vincents Hospital is being able to put what I learnt at Uni into practice. The hands-on experience I got through lab work and practical placements gave me the skills I needed to hit the ground running when I began work at the hospital.

I have always wanted to be an emergency nurse, which is why I chose St Vincents Hospital. I have been successful in gaining a four month rotation in the emergency department as a new graduate, which is really rewarding" - Gemma

"I chose nursing as a career as I liked its diversity and the flexibility it offers to steer my career into different areas. I have always enjoyed learning about the human body so the science aspect of nursing was appealing. I knew it would be a very rewarding career and would be perfectly suited to my personality – I love working and communicating with people. Ultimately, it was the fantastic opportunities to combine travel and work that appealed to me" - Alexandra

"The University of Newcastle has provided lots of practical experience. I enjoy the clinical placement as it allows you to develop interpersonal and hands-on nursing skills. It also provides exposure to various aspects and disciplines of nursing, and with each placement my confidence increases as I am able to relate the theory I learn in the classroom to professional practice" - Cheryl

"Studying nursing at the University of Newcastle will really take me places. I hope to continue my studies at a postgraduate level and work in a position that allows me to combine work and travel" - Tom
