Chantelle Hutcheon was inspired to become a nurse after seeing the care provided by nurses to a family member who was ill in hospital. She liked how they worked together as a team, and, being keen to help others herself, felt like it was the right career path for her.
Now in her second year of the Bachelor of Nursing at CPIT, Chantelle is well on her way to realising her dream. She says the programme is hands-on, the support from tutors is great and the facilities are amazing. As a student ambassador, she enjoys telling prospective students all about these things and many other aspects of studying at CPIT.
Although Chantelle hasn't chosen the area of nursing she'd like to specialise in yet, she knows she has many options and she's looking forward to the possibility of working overseas one day.
