"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.
"The ECU course is flexible and I can study it online"
I'm really passionate about safety, for me it's really important to ensure the safety and health of employees in a workplace.
Studying occupational health and safety at ECU was an easy thing to decide to do because it enhances those skills and can help me contribute in the workplace.
I was already in the field when I commenced the course and that was one of the reasons I wanted to start studying – to enhance my professional learnings.
Having an accredited course is really important given the professional recognition that it provides. The great thing about this course is that I can study online at a time that is convenient for me.
