Diversity In Nursing

At Peninsula Health, our nurses not only care for people, they care about people.

They pride themselves on their skills, expertise and compassion. They take an active role in making what is often a difficult experience, a better experience, for our patients and their families. Our nurses do this whilst delivering quality, contemporary, nursing practice.

Working at Peninsula Health offers diversity, flexibility and access to a range of postgraduate and professional development opportunities. We understand that our staff lead busy lifestyles and are continuously looking towards more flexible options to make work more manageable.

We provide graduate nurses, nurses re-entering the workforce and nurses taking part in postgraduate study programs a supportive work environment and senior nurse mentors to help encourage and guide their professional journeys.

Kathy Dunne
Enrolled Nurse Golf Links Road Rehabilitation Unit 1

 

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE NURSING AS A CAREER?

I couldn’t get into hairdressing, so I chose nursing and also my mother was a nurse Div 1!

WHAT ARE THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF YOUR JOB?

I love seeing results – seeing patients achieve their goals and go home.

Patients come to the unit with one leg and walk out the door with two!

It makes you feel good because you have helped them along their rehabilitation journey.

We have a great team at GLR 1 which also makes my job personally rewarding.
