Graduate certificate in Wound care 2010

Most complex wound care cases in the area are referred on to me – and not just in community nursing. I also get called in to tend to wounds in acute settings and nursing homes.

I chose community nursing after spending years raising a family and nursing at Bendigo Hospital. I enrolled in the Graduate Certificate in Wound Care to get more job skills but I worried about returning to study after 14 years.

But study proved addictive and invigorating. I gained valuable skills and learned how to educate other people.
