Tanika Maynard


High school attended: Caboolture State High School

Degree: Bachelor of Nursing Science

Target graduation date: 2020

My journey: Throughout high school I knew that I wanted to do nursing of some kind. I never thought I would be smart enough but decided to give animal nursing a shot. I fell in love with animals from a young age and decided to do a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. I am currently the Senior Nurse and thought it was time to try university. I applied via QTAC and got into the Bachelor of Nursing Science. I was shocked as I didn’t do a OP/ATAR. It’s amazing what USC has been able to offer me throughout my degree.

Career aspirations: My goal is to become a paediatric nurse, ICU nurse, emergency or theatre nursing. I am very hands on and being able to help in those aspects is what has driven my forward throughout my studies

Why did you become an Ambassador? I became an ambassador because I faced many challenges along the way from high school to university. I want to let others know that if you put your mind to it, you can do great things. As an ambassador I want to be able to help students and future students who need that boost of confidence they need to continue their journey, while helping them chose the right degree for them.

What do you like about USC? I fell in love with USC for many reasons. The staff are so incredibly friendly and always wanting you to succeed and do the best you can, along with the wildlife and the strong sense of community and unity I have found along with way.
