Where Are They Now? RN Teena Thomas

published: April 20th, 2010 | category: Changing lives, Husbands & families, Testimonials

NAME: TEENA THOMAS
FROM: ERNALUMAN, KERALA INDIA
POSITION: RN, AGED CARE
LIVES: TOOWOOMBA, QUEENSLAND

Teena was recently asked to be a Care Manager, a position that holds more responsibility and administration duties. “My job involves organising family conferences, creating Care Plans, and conducting audits,” Teena explains. “I will also be helping train a new nurse who is arriving soon from the Philippines.”

“Working in aged care is certainly challenging but there is so much job satisfaction and you really feel as though you are doing something important,” Teena says. “Nurses are the ones who are responsible for everything and they make most of the day-to-day decisions. Also, as an RN in aged care, you are required to do a fair bit of management that involves giving duties to the assistant nurses, and working in close contact with the families of the residents.

Teena Thomas, who lives in southern Queensland with her husband Sam, says she has fallen in love with Australia and “never wants to leave”. “I have so many friends here – Indian and Australian – and we often organise social functions through work on weekends,” Teena says. “Sam was recently granted an Australian Visa thanks to Allan and Maria’s help so he will be arriving here soon and I cannot wait!”
