Yr 10 Students participate in Nurse West “GREaT Work Experience” Program
Posted on 29/7/2013
Last week Year 10 student Hayley Simmons participated in a Nurse West Work Experience Program at Armidale Hospital. The program is developed by WA Health Nursing and Midwifery Office.
The Get Real Experience and Try (GREaT) program aims to encourage high school students to experience nursing prior to undertaking study with a state training provider or university.
Over four days the students had the chance to observe many aspects of nursing and midwifery in general wards and critical care. These included changing nappies and feeding newborn babies, taking temperatures and watching surgeries being performed. In the following weeks three other students will be participating in this program at other Perth Hospitals.
