In 2010 I enlisted in the Australian Regular Army as a Nursing Officer through the Long-Term Schooling Sponsorship Scheme. I completed my Bachelor of Nursing at La Trobe University in 2010 and continued to work in a civilian setting at the Austin Hospital, Melbourne for 2 years post qualification. I worked in a variety of acute and surgical departments, focusing mainly on accident and emergency to develop the skills required for my role in the Army.

In early 2013, I posted to my first active unit - Close Health - which comprised of supporting combat teams and were forefront of the health care provision in the Army. My role within this posting included providing initial battlefield resuscitation and trauma interventions for stabilisation for Medivac, logistical planning for health assets and delivery, primary health care delivery, clinical governance member, and education provision for medics, nursing officers and medical officers. It was in this role that I initially had exposure to the delivery of higher education in the development of the pilot programme 'Skills Maintenance Log Book Training'...
