Amy Fowler, a recent graduate from ECU's South West Campus has won the Sir Charles Gairdner Graduate Nurse of the Year Award.
Amy moved to Perth last year as part of her nursing placement and was nominated for the award by her peers in the graduate training program.
Ms Fowler praised the faculty team at the South West Campus, who are also award-winning; they were the recipients of the ECU Vice-Chancellor’s Award for Programs that Enhance Learning (VC APEL) 2010.
“Without the help of my tutors I wouldn’t be where I am today,” said Ms Fowler.
She is currently working in the Accident and Emergency department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and is enjoying the thrill of the fast, diverse pace this department offers her.
“You can have anything from cut fingers to stabbings.”
Looking to the future, Ms Fowler is planning to tackle a postgraduate course to become a clinical nurse.
“Essentially, I would like to see myself become a clinical coach nurse. I would like to coach and inspire young nurses as I aspire to be like the ones that have coached and inspired me.”
