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.

Charles Sturt University has a First Nations Success team that can help you build a secure support network. This network will help you with your studies to become a deadly future health leader.

Many services and supports are available for First Nations 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  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.
