15 February, 2018
A new face will be seen walking the halls of the Joyce Palmer Health Service from next week as part of the 2018 Townsville HHS graduate nurses intake.
Sunshine Coast University Bachelor of Nursing graduate Emily Cole is one of 121 nurses who have joined the health service this year and will call Palm Island home for the next 12 months.
Emily said she was excited launch her career by learning more about Indigenous health.
“I wanted to try something a little bit different during my graduate year and I thought Palm Island would offer a unique experience,” she said.
“Working in rural health offers more of an opportunity to see the full spectrum of health care in action and provide a more hands-on learning experience.
“I’m looking forward to using my graduate year to learn as much as possible.”
