Students discover a rewarding career
06 Jul 2022
A record cohort of high school students have taken their first steps towards a life changing career in health.
24 students from 14 high schools participated in the Health Inspirations program at Nepean Hospital where they were exposed to a variety of potential health careers.
More than 50 hospital staff helped facilitate a week of activities that saw students get hands on with health, including ward visits, education seminars, and one on ones with a range of health professionals.
Health Inspirations delivers an interactive and engaging set of experiences that encourages students to learn and reflect on their interests, skills and personal attributes, and how these may complement their career choices.
The program has left a lasting impression with students, it strengthening a pursuit of a career in health care services.
“It was extremely educational, I have figured out my career,” commented Amelie.
“I learnt that I 100% want a career in Health. The nurses at Nepean inspired me,” Katelyn added.
Warwick Perks, coordinator of the Health Inspirations program said the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.
“The feedback from the schools, parents and careers advisors has been positive and overwhelming. They are very appreciative of the opportunity afforded to their students.”
“The engagement with the program has been outstanding and it only sets to benefit our growing community and our future workforce.”
