Course Attended: Pre Entry Applied Health Sciences

If I hadn’t done the Pre-Health course at TPP back in 2012, I would probably still being working at the supermarket. I wouldn’t have a job that I love doing; that I get excited about every morning.

I wanted to be a nurse but, after high school, I wasn’t sure if I was up to the study involved in the Bachelor of Nursing. One of my friends was doing Pre-Health and it seemed like a good place to start. I found it really helpful – now I have my degree and I’m working at Grey Base Hospital.

The Pre-Health course set me up for my studies, it was like a stepping-stone. I enjoyed the people, the tutor was really great and it meant that moving on to the degree wasn’t a complete shock to the system.

I love being a nurse. If you’re thinking about training, just do it!
