Teritary hospitals tutor nursing students

WSLHD has opened its doors to 38 Year 11 students from private and public schools in western Sydney who are participating in a twoyear nationally recognised training program for budding nurses or other health care professionals.

WSLHD senior nurse educator Carrie Alvaro said the program “Certificate III in Health Services Assistance”, has started at Auburn, Blacktown and Westmead hospitals.

“The course is designed to provide students with the ability to study onsite and enhance their practical training by working more than 130 hours in our hospitals,” she said.

“The schools involved include St John Paul II Catholic College, Cerdon College, St Marks Catholic College, Auburn Girls High, Parramatta Marist and Catherine McCauley.

“I congratulate all the students who are taking part in the course and thank nurse educators Brenton Hughes and Linda Garrett, who will coach the students and provide them with the skills and knowledge to work as a assistant in nursing.”
