“I attended wound care conferences, courses and seminars, but I still felt I needed a university qualification to improve my understanding of evidence based practice in wound care.

“After studying at Monash I have more confidence in my abilities and skills. I went on to develop the At Risk Foot Clinic at RDNS Rosebud which operated in partnership with CHS podiatrists. I now support staff and clients in the southern region of Melbourne. While this new, more expansive role, is challenging, my studies have equipped me for it.

“I felt well supported throughout the course; given my anxiety of no previous university qualification. The support that was provided by coordinators and other students was great.”
