Students and trainees
In recognition of our ongoing responsibility to support nurses of the future and promote dementia care using a multidisciplinary approach, we regularly host nursing students from various Universities and TAFEs for the clinical component of their undergraduate degree or diploma. Garrawarra Centre is recognised as an Aged Care Teaching Facility to the following education providers: Western Sydney University, University of Technology, University of Wollongong, University of Wollongong College and Sydney Institute of TAFE NSW.
Garrawarra is a host organisation for trainee assistants in nursing and over the one year program these staff obtain excellent experience in aged care and dementia specific nursing care. Many seek to further their nursing career following this program by commencing enrolled/registered nursing courses.
