Nina is a Donation Specialist Nursing Coordinator at DonateLife Victoria. Having begun her nursing career in Emergency nursing, she was an advocate for organ and tissue donation in the emergency department before joining the DonateLife team at Monash Health. Having completed her master of nursing, Nina was keen to use her skills to ensure that both the community and hospital based staff are well informed of the importance of organ and tissue donation, with a focus on Cultural and Linguistically Diverse groups.
During her time as a donation specialist, she recalls that being able to support donor families through the organ donation process as a privilege. Having helped numerous donor families during the donation process, she understands the importance of being gentle, caring and mostly importantly genuine.
