Qualified nurse Jodie made a tree change from Melbourne to north-east Victoria two years ago and took up disability support work at the same time.
She loves working one-on-one with clients and seeing them meet personal goals.
“I would say, if you’re a nurse and looking to make the switch into being a support worker, do it! It’ll change your life,” she said.
“The skills that you have as a nurse are used every day in support work.
“I think I moved around in nursing a lot because I always liked a challenge and I found disability support to be that challenge that I am currently enjoying a lot.”
