Nursing ambition with TAFE NSW

"TAFE NSW is the perfect starting point for people of all levels, because the teachers are supportive and will go out of their way to help you."

Christine Bright

"TAFE NSW is the perfect starting point for people of all levels, because the teachers are supportive and will go out of their way to help you."

After having children and working part-time in a doctor’s surgery, Carcoar’s Christine Bright knew she wanted to pursue her passion of becoming a nurse. So Christine studied a Diploma of Nursing at TAFE NSW Orange, on her way to securing her dream job as an Enrolled Nurse at Blayney Hospital.  

“I always wanted to be qualified in something but I left school early,” Christine said.

But it wasn’t just the support that mattered in Christine’s journey. “I will never forget the practical skills I learnt,” she said, with her TAFE NSW studies giving her the confidence to be a wonderful nurse and advocate for her patients.
