First Nations success
Yindyamarra – create a world worth living in
We recognise the importance of First Nations people working in health professions and the important role they play in encouraging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to access health services.
We have a dedicated First Nations Health Success team who are able to help you build a secure support network to assist you along your studies to become a deadly future health leader.
We offer a suite of services and support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students on their academic journey to becoming successful health professionals. Together, we can help ‘close the gap’ and achieve better health outcomes for First Nations communities.
Nursing is a very rewarding career and there are plenty of opportunities. Three Rivers UDRH sponsored me to attend a career development conference which was an amazing opportunity to meet up with other Indigenous nurses and be inspired by the mark they are making on the health industry.
