About

👋🏼 Hey Friends

🤷🏼‍♂️ 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.

👨‍⚕️ 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.

AND

I have the Aussie Nurse Educator which has turned into a lot of fun 😍

So now I work for myself within my businesses and I work as Clinical Educator for Ramsay Health and also the local University.

You will also see me running around emergency or working anaesthetics 💊
