I enrolled when I first joined Elysium. That was very important for my development as a nurse. I’ve had the opportunity to progress from a preceptee nurse to a senior nurse in 9 months. To other student nurses wanting to join a supportive environment that will value your skills, definitely joining Elysium and enrolling on the preceptorship academy will make a massive difference for the beginning, middle and the rest of your career. It has been the best choice I’ve made.”
