Meet our team: Ranjana’s rewarding career as a Registered Nurse

Meet Ranjana BC. As a Registered Nurse (RN) at Heritage Epping, she has loved the path her career has taken so far in healthcare and aged care. It’s been one of dedication, learning, and unwavering commitment to excellence.

Building a career foundation

Ranjana laid the foundations for a career in healthcare by studying for a Diploma of Nursing. During this time, she also worked as a Personal Care Assistant and PCA (medication endorsed), gaining invaluable hands-on experience and insights on aged care.

After completing her Diploma in 2020, Ranjana recognised the importance of leadership and management skills in healthcare, completing an Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management. In 2021, she started her Bachelor of Nursing, which proved challenging but rewarding, and she was pleased to graduate in 2022.

“Becoming a nurse is a fulfilling job,” Ranjana says. “You can make a real difference in people’s lives, every day.”

“A kind, caring disposition is required to fit in,” she adds. She adds that continuous learning and never stopping caring about the people you help are key success factors.

“I’ve always loved spending time with older people, especially after my grandmother passed away when I was young.” It was a decisive moment for Ranjana, and why she decided to become a nurse – to care for those who need it most through connection and kindness. “Being a kind-hearted and caring individual is why I love my job and enjoy working closely with residents.”

As an RN, Ranjana has had to navigate complex medical scenarios and foster meaningful connections with residents and their families. She sees this as an opportunity for growth and learning.

Despite the challenges, there have been countless moments of success and fulfillment. “Every time I see someone feeling better or smiling because of the care we give – it makes it all worth it,” Ranjana says.
