Samantha Morris, who attended Melba Copland Secondary School already knows what she wants to study.

She'll be the third generation of women in her family to take up nursing. She plans to study for a degree in nursing and midwifery at the University of Canberra.

"My grandmother Lorraine Miller and my mother Antionette Tulloh are both nurses," Ms Morris said.

"My grandmother was a palliative care nurse and my mother has worked in disability care for 20 years. They were both inspirations for me."

Ms Morris said taking on VET courses during her final years at school opened her eyes to the opportunities available in nursing. She completed Australian School Based Apprenticeships in Aged Care and Ageing Support while working at the Calvary Hayden Retirement Community, where she was recognised with the Mary Potter Award for kindness, generosity and friendliness.
