Student Success Story – Jessie Crawford

Student Success Story

Jessie Crawford, Diploma of Paramedical Science Graduate.

It was our pleasure to chat with APC graduate, Jessie Crawford!

Jessie completed the Diploma of Paramedical Science (now called Diploma of Emergency Health Care) with us at the Australian Paramedical College and has hit the ground running since finishing.

Jessie managed to secure a job with the company she did Clinical Placement with. On the weekends she works as an Event Medic, and gets to work alongside Registered Paramedics at fun events like motocross, equestrian events, rugby events, fun runs, and more!

During the week she is studying a Bachelor of Paramedicine through Charles Sturt University in Bathurst. In the video, you will hear Jessie explain how she used her APC Diploma to boost her university application.

By starting with the Diploma before going into university, she will now graduate with her bachelor’s degree AND 3+ years of work experience in the field.

Jessie is giving herself a strong and solid foundation for a long and rewarding career as a paramedic.
