Think Education’s renowned Nursing scholarship program has wrapped up for T1, and we can say without exaggeration – it was one of the toughest and most competitive years we have seen yet. Choosing from among this list of candidates fell to our panel of judges, and the task could not have been more difficult.

This scholarship provides an amazing opportunity to join the ranks of registered nurses in Australia, a qualification that can take you around the world, where no one day is ever the same as the next.

International Women’s Day’s theme this year, at the dawn of the new decade, is #EachforEqual

International Women

We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. International Women’s Day (IWD)

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurse & Midwife, to recognise and celebrate the extraordinary contribution nurses and midwives make to healthcare today and have made for hundreds of years. Around the globe, more than 20 million nurses and midwives devote their lives to caring for their patients, in many cases even before these people are born.

Over summer, the world watched in horror as bushfires set Australia ablaze. Our sadness and fears were mixed with gratitude for the emergency workers, including volunteers, who put their lives on the line to help – one of those volunteers was Andrea Hall.

Andrea’s a Registered Nurse with expertise in emergency nursing and mental health, and a Senior Nursing Facilitator at THINK Education and Torrens University Australia.

Talking about her Graduation Day in November, 2019, Caitlin Bridges-Hunt says,

‘I was so excited. My dad was there, and I know he got teary eyed, and my dad never cries. That was a big moment for me.’

Caitlin had a double reason for feeling excited. On stage, in front of the other students and lecturers, she received her Diploma of Nursing and the Excellence Award – Vocational.
