Our People


Deborah Hatcher


Nursing and midwifery are rewarding professions that provide career opportunities in clinical, academic and business environments and challenge graduates to define and identify their own boundaries and horizons. Our School is a national leader in nursing and midwifery education, research and scholarship, with one of the largest undergraduate pre-registration nursing degree course in Australia. We have over 5,000 students, including 700 international students, yet despite our size, we provide individual attention in our teaching and learning activities.

If you are interested in studying a challenging course in one of Australia's leading schools of nursing and midwifery, take time to look at our website and if you would like further information,  please contact the School and we will be able to provide you with information about our courses.
