Campus
In 1996 while working as a Director of Nursing, Janet was approached by three international students who were not just desperately looking for a job but emotionally upset. As for six months they had been looking for a job and were not successful. Janet said she would accept them to work in aged care on condition they undertook training in aged care. This was imperative, as Janet believed that the elderly residents needed appropriately qualified staff to care for them. She decided that training in aged care was a need and started a sole trade business called Professional Development Consultants.
