Ruby, Perioperative Specialist Year Nurse
“I hadn’t worked in theatre before so starting this specialist year was all completely new. That’s rewarding, knowing I can do operations and how much I’ve learnt in such a small space of time. I had mentors in Perioperative Educator Liz Krstevski and the ANUMs, who I could closely work with for support through my different rotations. They’ve all been very supportive, helpful and willing to teachme new things. The grad team last year was great and transitioning to this year was a really good year with a lot of support. I’m planning to do a post-grad qualification next year while I continue working in theatre.”
