School Based Trainee Program

Logan and Redland Hospitals' School Based Trainees have graduated after 12 months of hard work and dedication.

Logan Bayside Health Network School Based Trainee Program Coordinator Karen Webster said the students had achieved a Certificate III in Individual Support, qualifying them to work as Assistants in Nursing.

She said the trainees had worked one day every week in the hospitals over the last year, caring for patients, showering them and providing general ward assistance.

“This program provides young people in the local community with a wonderful opportunity and stepping stone to a career in nursing or the health care sector.

“These thirteen amazing young people now hope to further their studies in health care related fields.

“The program is truly making a difference in the lives of young people.

“We wish Abigail, Elizabeth, Cassandra, Jennifer, Patricia, Holly, Brettany, Nadia, Angelina, Carlee, Jessica, Matilda and Niamh every success in their future endeavours.”

Karen said the success of the program would not be possible without the support of organisations and people across the community including:

  • Rochedale State High School

  • Cavendish Road State High School
  • Chisholm Catholic College
