Testimonials from previous Graduates at Kareena Private Hospital.

“I found the New Graduate program to be a rewarding and empowering experience that
has enriched my keenness to continue learning.
It has been a driving force in turning me from a nervous newly Registered Nurse into an
experienced Nurse Practitioner. It has assisted in building my confidence and knowledge
in all areas of nursing and leading me to become a team leader”.
Johnathon Hay, Registered Nurse

My year as a newbie
“The road was a roller coaster. My year was fun and challenging, scary, exciting, and
stressful at times, rewarding and most of all enlightening. My co workers and educators
have put a lot of time to nurture educate and support me in what was my New Grad year.
As a nurse with nil experience (except for a few weeks of prac) it was a rocky start but I
feel that with the support of the Kareena team I am improving and learning new skills
each and every day. I come to work and know that it will bring a new experience to
expand my ever increasing knowledge base”.
Amanda Pope, Registered Nurse Year 2
