Graduate Brittany Phizacklea, who joined RNSH as part of the program, said she was excited to be offered a role in the RNSH neonatal intensive care unit. “I’m really excited to be learning and working at one of the best and highly rated hospitals,” she said. “The team aspect of nursing is also very exciting to me, especially being able to work alongside other graduates who are just as passionate about neonatal nursing.” NSLHD will continue to welcome graduate nurses and midwives as part of the program, with the next intake taking place later in March.
