I am a registered nurse of four years' experience, and I completed the graduate certificate in orthopaedic nursing at the ACN in 2015. My tutors, Robyn and Megan, were very helpful in supporting the students, sharing their knowledge via the online forums, and providing constructive feedback to assessment pieces. The content was presented in a way which was easy to follow and stimulated critical thinking. Ultimately, participation in this course has helped me develop both my competence and confidence in the area of orthopaedic nursing. The leadership themes throughout the subjects also translate easily into other areas of nursing, and I have seen a significant, positive transformation within my own role as a nurse leader.
