    Student

    Ivy Hodges

    Bachelor of Nursing Science

    Doing my three-week placement in Weipa made me more drawn to becoming a rural and remote nurse and giving back to my people. I was able to have a more hands-on experience: applying cultural competencies and applying competent nursing skills to my people. This made me realise my potential as a future registered nurse.

The Student and Staff Consultative Committee worked tirelessly to support us in our learning, and the Peer Mentor Program offered invaluable support.
