How CQUniversity’s global mobility program, CQUGlobal, can change your life

Had I known that studying abroad was possible when I was at university I would have jumped at the chance to do part of my course overseas.

Growing up my father was in the British army and we moved home and country every 2 years until I was 13. Immersing myself in another culture was a central part of my life during this time, and from aged 9 I would fly home solo to whichever European country we lived in during the school holidays. At University, I didn’t know that Exchange was an option so when I graduated and I realised I wasn’t ready to start my career like most of my friends, I decided to go to Paris to learn French instead.

A change to Nursing for the better

When I was in high school, I was so torn as to my future. I really liked the Creative Arts but also had a passion for Science. There was pressure to know what I was going to “be” in the future. If I could go back in time and give advice to myself in high school, I would say two things:

Firstly- stop stressing about the future! So much pressure is put on knowing what you want to do and having that concrete plan for success. There are always ways and means of attaining your dreams- there is no linear path to get anywhere. You may need to do a bridge here, and go a road there, but it is possible to get where you want to go. And if you don’t know where you want to go, that’s ok too! Try something, if it’s not right, try something else. Find your happiness. There are people out there that have their plan from a young age and everything it seems goes to plan. However, this isn’t always the case and may take a little longer to find.

The second thing I would say would be check out Nursing. I’m proud to now have a better appreciation for this amazing workforce and even more proud to now be joining their ranks. There is no such thing as “just a nurse”. There are so many disciplines and sub-specialties and Australia being as diverse and geographically vast as it is, there are so many exciting opportunities!
