"The opportunity to conduct OHS-related research was a fantastic experience"
I was drawn to ECU's Master of Occupational Health and Safety as the content seemed so logical and highly relevant to the industry and the workplaces I was employed in. All of the lecturers have remarkable academic and industry backgrounds, and while my course was primarily online, the lecturer support and ongoing electronic contact I received was outstanding.
Through the research I commenced in my Masters degree, I will be presenting at the 2018 National Nursing Conference. It is exciting that I could potentially influence national OHS Nursing direction, and I would not be in this position without the skills that I developed at ECU.
