What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
Inter Cert (now Junior Cert) only! Life experience helped and then I took further training. A Civics teacher guided me and then I did a Care course in Bull Alley Street. This confirmed to me that the area I wanted to work in was in care work. The direct Nursing path way was brilliant although it wasn't my first choice.
At 24 I was too young for a Trinity Social work degree (their loss). I loved my nurse training. I was very hands on which suited me, I am not sure if I could have coped as well in a college only environment. I often wonder what I would have done if I had stayed on in school, done the Leaving and then gone to college..... but I have no regrets!
