“I have recently moved to Perth from Melbourne. Nursing in Perth is so different. The weather is a lot warmer and the lifestyle is very coastal. I get the opportunity to go to the beach and beachside cafes before work with my partner and dog, which is what I love about Perth” WANA RN – Rosanna Mileti.
