Tricks of the Trade

As much as I really enjoy the detective work of my job – the challenge of putting all the pieces together to come up with the diagnosis – by far my favourite part is getting in and getting my hands dirty; treating my patients and their ailments. Artistic flair is definitely not something that was […]

Look how far we’ve come, baby!

I often wonder what people want to read about in these blogs, and have put it ‘out there’ for anyone who may have suggestions. So, thanks to a lovely colleague (you know who you are!) I bring you today’s trip down memory lane. One of the things that inevitably comes up in many discussions when […]

Insight into Frankston’s Critical Care Liaison Nurse Service

Everyone has that someone who they look up to or perhaps admire in the workplace. For me there is no particular individual but rather a group of individuals that I aspire to be like one day. They often arrive like angels in times of need; only they’re not in white with halos on top of […]


It has been an extended holiday from blogging for me…sorry about that folks! With Antibiotic Awareness Week last month I decided that this blog should focus on antibiotic awareness. To me, antibiotics are one of the most amazing groups of medications that we have. They are lifesaving medicines, drugs that stop people dying from diseases […]

Making Connections

Hello there everyone. It feels like the past couple of months have flown. Since my last blog I have completed my ICU rotation, had a lovely two weeks of annual leave and have moved to ward 5GN where I will complete the final rotation of my grad year. It is actually scary how fast this […]

Precious Premmies

Nevertheless there is always stress!

Happy spring everyone!! It is difficult to believe that this time last year I was anxiously awaiting the day I would find out my destiny…aka if and where I would be accepted into a graduate nurse program. I remember how nervous I was. I was getting ready, driving and waiting to go into my interviews, especially […]

Deadlines are hard

During uni, this is how an assignment works: A few weeks where you kind of research a topic, a few days where you write it up, and then a quick final check before you submit it. There was even a case of a friend I studied with, who shall remain anonymous, who started a 3000 […]

Healthcare Isn’t Like Cooking

So, you’ve broken your leg. Now what? How on earth do we know what to do about it? The aim for each and every patient is to provide them with the treatment that will give them the best possible outcome. Unfortunately, health care isn’t like cooking; there is no set recipe you can follow. Taking […]

The great discussion of baby feeding

Since this week was world breastfeeding week, I thought it was a great time to discuss the age old topic of baby feeding. But this message isn’t about the pros and cons of breast vs bottle. Rather, I want to look at breastfeeding in a more personal way. I am going to start by stepping […]
