BUTLER College student Kathleen Bezer is the school’s first student accepted into Edith Cowan University’s training program for nursing.

Vocational education and training manager Leigh Litten said the school was proud to see its first student participate in the program as a result of the college’s ongoing relationship with ECU.

“Her application demonstrated that she has met the selection criteria set by ECU School of Nursing and Midwifery,” she said.

“Kathleen will be supported during her time in this program by the college’s dedicated and passionate VET office team.

“The college is proud to be able to support Kathleen as our first student to participate in this exciting program.

“We hope that by sharing her experiences this will encourage other students to apply to participate in this program in the future.”

The four-day training course promotes the diversity of a nursing career, using teaching aids such as human patient simulators and scenario-based training.
