Western Sydney nurses inspire university students

Western Sydney University students speak with WSLHD nurses.

Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) nurses and midwives have met and inspired hundreds of students at Western Sydney University who are looking to work at WSLHD hospitals.

WSLHD Research and Education Network Nursing and Midwifery Education manager Tanya Critchlow said the students were able to speak to clinical experts in a wide range of specialty areas including midwifery, management, child and family health, critical care, community and workforce.

“Finishing a university qualification and embarking on the Transition to Practice year can be a very daunting process,” Ms Critchlow said.

“We are looking to demystify this and encouraged our leaders of tomorrow to Embrace their Future.

“There is no wrong choice in career pathway whether they chose a clinical, management, research or education role or a combination of all.

“The clinical and educational support provided is second to none paving a pathway to success.

“The students watched a rolling slideshow of the infrastructure growth at Blacktown and Westmead sites and were excited to discuss the new clinical service building, cutting edge technology and of course career opportunities.”
