Meet Alisha Johnson
Alisha is a graduate of the Bachelor of Nursing Advanced course at Campbelltown campus.
Alisha is first in family to attend University and is the recipient of the Enid Helen Hort and Family Scholarship.
We asked Alisha to share with us what student life is like and what words of wisdom she would share with future Western Sydney University students:
Nursing is great! The staff and academics within the school of nursing are extremely helpful and are easily accessible. The course itself is very practical and hands on which prepares you for clinical placement and nursing in the real world.
Campbelltown campus is a beautiful campus, with lots of flora and fauna. There are two coffee shops on campus, which are easy to access, especially when moving from class to class. The cafeteria has pool tables and provides such a friendly, laid back atmosphere. The library is 24 hours during semester and there are friendly staff who there who are always willing to help.
I choose to transfer over to Western Sydney University, not only because it is close to home, but because I knew that I would receive opportunities such as to follow my passion of going into nursing research. I intend on completing my nursing degree and then going on to complete an Honours course. I will do my Masters and PhD that will focus on the illness experience of patients living with chronic illness and invisible diseases such as MS and diabetes. I hope to one day be an academic at Western.
If I was talking to students who are considering studying at Western Sydney University, I would encourage them to speak to the Course Information team at Western, they give great advice and are extremely helpful.
