Claire was a nursing practitioner I worked with when I was a second-year Registered Nurse. I had just started a new role in an over-300 bed residential aged care facility and felt so overwhelmed.
Claire was a role model to me and gave me great suggestions in terms of both clinical and team management. As a nurse practitioner, she was also studying Master of Palliative Care at Flinders University. I was inspired by her continuous professional development and ended up also undertaking my Master of Palliative Care. I have been studying the course part-time and this is my third year.
I might even continue to pursue a nurse practitioner career after completing the palliative care course.
