School of Nursing
and Midwifery


Discipline Lead | Bronwyn Everett

Located in Australia’s fastest growing region, the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University offers one of Australia’s highest independently ranked nursing programs. The School has an outstanding reputation for teaching excellence, reflected in national citation awards, and its researchers are rated well above world standard in nursing research (Excellence in Research for Australia), particularly in the fields of aged care, chronic conditions and disability, mental health, and education and workforce.

Nursing at Western focuses on addressing and, where possible, overcoming and shaping generational challenges in areas of chronic disease, healthy ageing, women’s and children’s health, mental health and wellbeing, and health innovation. This is supported by world-class teaching and clinical facilities, strong links with our region, and partners, community and staff committed to equipping nursing graduates with the transdisciplinary ‘hybrid’ capabilities needed for their success in a disrupted future of work and society. Our courses are accredited under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.
