These were the words of a mother of three who has finally achieved her long time dream of becoming a registered nurse.

Caroline Plaatjies graduated from the Netcare Education graduation ceremony in Cape Town on July 27.

The mother of three passed her Bridging Course II with honours and had also received the Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital Award, the Professional Development Trophy and a silver medal for her academic performance in both the Bridging I and Bridging II courses.

“It was a great honour to receive these awards, and it has motivated me to keep working hard and study further,” she said.
