True Grit — Nikki Burnett is tackling medicine with three young kids
After successfully completing a nursing degree with three small kids and working full time, Nikki knew there was nothing stopping her from continuing her education and studying medicine. It wasn’t the smoothest journey through the admissions process with a newborn in tow, but she’s had the unrelenting support from her family, community, and academic staff. More importantly, she has backed herself through the entire process. Now in her final year of medicine, she says time management has become an important skill. Her advice to prospective medical students is to have grit and not give up.
