Sue is passionate about making a difference in how the community and Nurses experience the healthcare system.
“Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare system and work in difficult environments that can take advantage of their commitment to ensuring the best possible care is delivered. To continue to meet professional and community expectations Nurses and Midwives need to acknowledge their unique contribution to health care delivery and assert their collective strength to safeguard the community and ensure their ongoing professional needs are recognised and met. Healthcare should be delivered by competent, knowledgeable individuals to ensure the best possible experience for the recipient of that care.
Nursing is a fabulous profession. The knowledge and skill of the individual Nurse will have the greatest influence on the happiness and health outcomes of each and every client”.

A thoroughly well run course. It was great to have the handout and the blank book for notes. I am keen to access the library for the powerpoint text – I am hoping these include the content references. Anne and Sue have certainly worked hard to make this course so seamless. Well done.
If you struggle to be assertive this course gives you practical tools to become better able to stand up for yourself. Loved the practical side of learning what to do and say in difficult situations, both at home and work. A very helpful course for both personal and work life. Teaches your beneficial skills in how to stand up for yourself and be assertive in a very practical way.
