Priscilla Sharpe"I have chosen CDU because I live in Darwin and it easier to attend classes. I am studying a Bachelor of Nursing and I am enjoying every moment of it. I had to learn how to juggle study with family timetables, which was quite challenging, but with the help of my course coordinator and my family, I have managed to follow my study plan." - Priscilla Sharpe
