The article focuses on New National Student Unit chairperson Jacqui Bennetts, who is in the final six months of her nursing degree at the Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology. Now in her early 40s, Bennetts comes from a long line of nurses, beginning with her great grandmother who was a community nurse in the Tapanui district in Southland. Over the intervening years, she has worked as a care worker and nurse aide in both Australia and New Zealand. Bennetts has now set her sights on working as an acute medical nurse at Christchurch Hospital and on joining its new graduate programme once her studies end.
