Only two years after leaving India, one of our nurses has been awarded ”Best Care Manager in Australia” from one of the country’s largest healthcare providers.

Originally from Kerala in India, RN Jisha Abraham has achieved remarkable success since arriving in Australia two years ago with Nursing Careers Australia (NCA). The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) graduate was promoted to Chief Nurse one year after securing a job with Australia’s largest private aged care provider.

This would “never” have happened in India, she said. “I would have been stuck in the same job for at least ten years before being promoted,” Jisha said. “There are only two levels of nursing in India and it takes a lot of time to move from one to the other.”

Thanks to ongoing career support from NCA, Jisha recently beat hundreds of nurses in 60 aged care facilities to win ”Best Care Manager in Australia”.

“I didn’t know much about aged care because it doesn’t exist in India, so initially I thought I might lose my skills if I didn’t work in a hospital, “Jisha said. “However, I have gained more experience after two years working in the aged care industry, which is incredible because I never would have done that in a hospital.”

The 28-year-old said it was the professional support from Nursing Careers Australia that had enabled her to achieve great success in a short amount of time.

“I do not regret even for a second moving to Australia and I have Allan Pitman to thank for guiding me in the right direction,” Jisha said. “The people at Nursing Careers Australia really know what they are doing!”
