"The choice to study a Bachelor of Nursing (Practice Leadership) at the Australian Catholic University in Canberra was an easy decision to make, due to the comprehensive content of the degree and the excellent reputation that is maintained in the hospitals by students. I always felt that I had a calling to be doing something more to contribute to society and to the common good, and being a nurse gives you the ability to directly contribute to the common good every time you put on your nursing uniform. The Australian Catholic University also supports and encourages students to actively participate in projects that are in line with the ethos of the university, particularly in the area of social responsibility and justice.

"The introduction of the Australian Catholic University Calvary Clinical School has provided the opportunity to complete practical nursing shifts spread out over the duration of the semester. This has enabled me the chance to link in-class theory with practice, and achieve higher academic grades as a result of the program.

When enrolled in a degree at the Canberra campus, you not only become a student, but also a member of a wider community. This is reflected in the friendly atmosphere of the campus and the approachable nature of all staff and students. I never hesitate in recommending the Australian Catholic University as an option to potential future nursing students."
