Another successful group of Logan and Redland Hospitals School Based Trainees have celebrated their graduation following a year of study and hard work on the wards.
The students from schools across Logan and the Bayside received their Certificate II in Individual Care as well as a unique insight into working in a hospital and experience to start their careers in nursing.
School Based Trainee Co- Ordinator Karen Webster said she wanted to congratulate all the graduates as well as Ozmac Apprenticeships, TAFE Qld, staff across the hospital and all the schools for their support over the past 12 months.
She said the students had worked hard to juggle school work, home life, the traineeship and shifts at the hospital to complete 375 hours on the wards.
“This program is about giving local young people opportunities and supporting them on a journey to a successful career and future.
“Health is an exciting space to be in and to complete Year 12 with an Assistant in Nursing qualification really is fantastic.”
