Thanks to Ramsay’s Nurse Leaders of Tomorrow leadership program, Ramsay Clinic Wentworthville’s new Director of Clinical Services, Theresa Welschinger, is stepping into her next challenge with the tools and confidence to succeed.
Theresa has been with Ramsay since 2018 and has worked as a Unit Manager, Acting Deputy DCS and Acting DCS across Mount Wilga and Berkeley Vale Private Hospitals during this time.
Recently, Theresa successfully completed Ramsay's Nurse Leaders of Tomorrow (NLOT) program.
“The experience of NLOT was not like any leadership course I had undertaken before. You are taken on a journey of supported self-discovery, with the program looking at you as a person, a partner and a leader,” Theresa said.
“You work on yourself, what’s important and what’s not. When you realise the contributions you make to people’s lives, you then understand how you can go about doing more of that and less of those things that don’t matter.
“I now have a level of self-belief and confidence that I carry with me into my new adventures.”
When asked why she chooses to work at Ramsay, her answer is simple.
“People Caring for People – it’s not just a saying, it’s a true value and when we embed it into our home lives as well as our working lives, the saying ‘work-life balance’ disappears. I value this so much and it’s the reason I changed my career direction back in 2018 over to Ramsay.”
“Nursing means you have choices. That’s why I love being a nurse at heart. As well as collaborating alongside amazing colleagues within my leadership roles.”
Theresa's long-term goal is to make a difference in someone's day, each and every day. And she's sure to achieve it!
