At the School of Nursing and Midwifery we have a passion for finding better ways to educate and train nurses and midwives and enhance their capacity to professionally and competently contribute to the improved well being in our community.


The school offers a diverse and exciting mix of courses that are developed in consultation with industry groups and combine the latest theory with hands-on, practical experiences.

At the Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Services Research, we undertake innovative research to develop knowledge, evaluate effectiveness and implement change in healthcare through interventions, treatments and knowledge to transform and shape policy and practice in three key areas:

  • Safety and Quality in Healthcare;
  • Improving Outcomes for Adults with Chronic Health Conditions; and
  • Childbearing, Children and Young People.
