Hospital wins partnership award
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital has won this year's Hunter TAFE Institute Industry Partnership Award.
Surgical ward nursing manager Ms Rosemary Strutt accepted the award on behalf of the hospital at the award ceremony held on Friday, May 27, at Caves Beachside Resort
The industry partnership award is presented to recognise an organisation that has made a major contribution to the development and enhancement of education and training at Hunter TAFE.
"The hospital has taken Year 11 and 12 students doing a Nursing Certificate III for their HSC," said hospital business development manager Ms Ella Li.
"Each year, we take about eight students training in the hospital for one day per week over the period of two months.
"The training program has provided students with exclusive opportunity of working in a hospital and gaining firsthand experience," said Ms Li.
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital has been operating since 1978 and comprises 76 beds.
"In the last two years, Brisbane Waters Private Hospital and Hunter TAFE Institute have developed a unique industry training partnership," she said.
