At the School of Nursing and Midwifery we have a passion for finding better ways to educate and train nurses and midwives, enhancing their capacity to professionally and competently contribute to improved wellbeing in our community.
We run the largest Nursing program and the only dual Nursing/Midwifery degree in Western Australia. And we have facilities that are the envy of other universities.
We provide our students, external partners and the community with access to a unique range of educational and research resources and programs. These resources seek to improve the capacity of individuals, teams and organisations to lead, facilitate and manage change and innovation across the health system.
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.
