Prasanka is our kind and friendly nurse. She is a highly motivated and competent person who is committed in all aspects of her working life. She completed her Diploma in General Nursing from the college of Nursing in Galle in Sri Lanka in 1995. She has more than 13 years of experience as a Registered nurse in Sri Lanka in diverse clinical settings including rural, neurosurgical, orthopaedic and general surgical nursing.

After moving to Australia, she completed her Bachelor of Nursing in 2014 and completed further postgraduate training in immunisation from the Australian College of Nursing in 2015. She has been part of our team at Keilor Medical Clinic for nearly a year now.

Prasanka has flourished in General Practice nursing because she enjoys holistic patient care. She reflects that, in general practice each day is different and there is always the thrill of never knowing who or what will walk through the door. She enjoys working in a large clinic because it allows her to practice a broad range of skills such as performing wound care, emergency care, patient education, ECG’s, spirometry, assisting with minor surgery, vaccination – childhood and travel, maintain cold chain requirements, ordering of stock, health assessments, asthma and diabetes cycle of care.

Outside work, she enjoys reading, listening to music and enjoys being in natural surrounds. She works full time at our clinic.
