Caitlin Cook

Diploma of Nursing

RTO: South West TAFE

Employer: Simply Seniors in Home Care

Caitlin, a young stay-at-home mum of five, always wanted to be a nurse, but never believed she could achieve her dream. After joining the Young Parents VCAL program at South West TAFE, Caitlin applied for the Diploma of Nursing. Caitlin loved her time studying, but had to overcome personal tragedy. Nevertheless, Caitlin was determined to create a successful career and positive future. Now Caitlin works as an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse and is embarking on a Bachelor of Nursing/Midwifery at Deakin University. Caitlin said she changed so much that she hardly recognises the person who started the course two years ago.
