Tanya Woollard (Class of 2011)

I graduated from PMACS in 2011 and was accepted into Edith Cowan University to study nursing. I always knew that I wanted to go into neonatal nursing, but I just didn't know how to do it. I was lucky to secure the old 3B, the surgical neonatal ward at Princess Margaret Hospital for my last placement. Here I asked questions about how to secure a job in neonatal, which to my dismay I learned that I needed to get into a graduate programme and go through King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH). Unfortunately, I didn't get accepted for a grad program in Perth when I finished my undergrad nursing degree. The year I graduated program places were more than halved, with 150 places for over 900 students. I managed to secure a graduate program in Queensland at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) in their neonatal program. So at 21 I moved state to follow my dream. Knowing no one in Brisbane was tough, but it was worth it. I worked at RBWH for 2 years and learnt about the care and support needed for infants born as early as 23 weeks gestation. Queensland laid down the basis of my knowledge and I managed to return to Perth in 2017 with a job at KEMH. I work12 hour shifts looking after infants that have a too early or rough start to life. It's hard, and some days need to be fought, but everyday is made better by the fact you can help parents to experience so many firsts. First cuddles, first nappy changes and first feeds. It's the most rewarding career I could hope for. I have just finished my postgraduate degree through the University of Tasmania and I'm looking for the next way to progress my job and my knowledge.
