It has been a great confidence booster for me as a Nursing student to not only communicate with other health professionals, but to understand what you guys are saying!!. I feel a little more at ease about starting my nursing career.’ ~‘A good experience, we get to put into practice what we have studied. It was great to have positive feedback on my thoughts as well as seeing what other disciplines thought. This program has been positive and everybody provided helpful & friendly opinions. It has reinforced that I am now a new graduate occupational therapist and that working in a multidisciplinary team.’ Team Health Right Start Program Showcase 27 February 2012
