Keirstie is currently the Emergency Services Nursing Director Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN).

It is an exciting time to be working in CALHN with an abundance of change and it has reaffirmed for me what I love about my career – a challenge, operational management, big picture thinking and most importantly working with a team of clinicians who are all passionate about Emergency nursing care.
