student PROFILE Amanda Gallacher

Bachelor of Nursing The more Amanda Gallacher has learned about nursing, the more certain she has become that it’s what she is meant to be doing. Nurturing instincts led the second-year Waiariki Institute of Technology Bachelor of Nursing student to pursue a career as a nurse and her studies are opening her mind to a world of possibilities. Amanda loves the challenge of it all – even having to juggle her studies with part-time work and family life – and says a strong support network is helping her to succeed. Returning to studying as an adult wasn’t as difficult a transition as Amanda thought it might be. The former university psychology student believes that’s largely because at Waiariki the learning environment is more intimate with smaller classes than at university, providing the opportunity to ask questions and get advice and support from tutors. There’s also a lot of support from fellow students. “We get broken up into groups and do a lot together so you become pretty tight and it’s been really important to have that support from my peers. We all drive each other. There’s a lot more self-directed learning now so you’ve got to be motivated and committed but I love the challenge.” Practical experience in various health settings has given Amanda an insight into the various directions she could take her nursing career. Also having an interest in mental health, she is now undecided about what direction she will take and relishing the opportunity to explore all her options before making a final decision.
