Nursing ambitions for students in the bush
Rural outreach program building a bridge into higher education.
A pilot education program to be run in three regional and remote high schools will help overcome the tyranny of distance and lack of opportunities for far-flung students.
The University of Wollongong (UOW) was recently awarded a National Priority Pool grant to run the Rural In2Uni pilot program, funded through the Department of Education 2016 Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP).
Three schools will be selected for the pilot program in regional NSW and Victoria experiencing high levels of social and education disadvantage.
Brandon Nation, who has completed his first year of a Bachelor of Nursing degree at UOW Bega, knows first hand the value of being given the opportunity to see where higher education could lead.
