👋🏼 Hey Friends
My name is Rory and I am the Aussie Nurse Educator.
I am a Perianaesthesia Clinical Nurse Specialist and Clinical Nurse Educator.
I love and am passionate about Education and Personal Development.
Let me introduce myself and how the Aussie Nurse Educator was founded 😁👇🏼
The Aussie Nurse Educator
🤷🏼♂️ How it Started
The Aussie Nurse Educator was an idea I first had in 2019. I was working as an Anaesthetic CNS and began educating in the operating theatres and as 2020 hit, so did COVID. I was still really interested and keen to start the brand, and towards the middle of 2020, my wife and I decided to get married. During our amazing time off that extended into 2021, the Aussie Nurse Educator was born. It was Jan-Feb 2021 and I started posting on Instagram.
🚀 Where it leads
In June, I launched this website, which consisted of only this page and one single story on my blog. Today, I host a newsletter with 800+ awesome nurses who receive it once a month, along with other awesome perks. I have a blog and a shop full of resources for you. I regularly post free content on my blog, Instagram, and YouTube.
🎯 The Aim
I aim to empower nurses through education, personal development, and a little fun 😜 … to provide an environment that is committed, encouraging, and able to guide and support the educational and personal development goals and aspirations of this awesome community.
👨🏼🏫 Education I Create
I create content based around pharmacology, medications, anaesthesia, patient deterioration, emergency, patient assessment and safety.
My core fundamental education is pharmacology.
💻 How I Can Help You
I create and develop educational courses, digital downloads, guides and resources.
I offer professional coaching for nurses looking to level up their games and achieve.
Get To Know Rory
👨⚕️ Meet Me
My name is Rory, I am a Registered Nurse, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Educator & Facilitator.
My clinical experience spreads across a 10-year span with the majority of this and up until late last year, was spent within an operating theatre working in peri-anaesthesia and peri-operative setting.
In my career, I have worked in anaesthesia, recovery, emergency, surgical, rehabilitation, mental health, pre-hospital care and aquatic rescue.
Prior to my journey in Nursing, I was a Professional Beach Lifeguard…that’s another story though.
At the end of 2021, I left my role within the operating theatre, where I worked as a specialist and also an educator mentoring students in their programs with the local university.
At the beginning of 2022, I decided to do something different.
I had extended leave over the summer when I left my job.
I decided to work for myself.
I already have a growing and successful business that I love and enjoy running and servicing our clients.
