Meet Jeanne: a registered nurse at Bupa Aged Care Caulfield

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jean talks about her role as a registered nurse at Bupa Caulfield and shares what she loves about her job.

I grew up in Sri Lanka but migrated to Australia for university. I finished my nursing degree and then applied for the graduate nurse program at Bupa. I started as a graduate nurse and then continued on as a registered nurse.

Why nursing? I was always interested in biology and the human body. My uncle is a doctor back home and my auntie is a nurse. In a hospital, you never really know who the person is because you rarely get to see them a second time.

In aged care, you get to know the residents well and in addition to person's vital signs, you can look at the resident and just know something is wrong by reading their body language or knowing what their words mean.
