NHW staff present at Health Careers Forum

The North East Victorian Health Careers Forum held on Wednesday 6th June, at the Wangaratta campus of Charles Sturt University (CSU) was a great success and well supported by over 130 students from a large number of secondary schools located in the North East.

NHW staff presented information about their personal pathways into the healthcare industry and discussed how students can pursue their particular field. Guest speakers outlined “typical days” in their chosen field and involved students in practical activities. Events like this are paramount to building our future workforce by exposing students to real-life stories, told by passionate healthcare workers.
