The overall vision of the School is to provide a learning community committed to excellence in teaching, research, scholarship and practice that contributes to local and global efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of society. In doing so, we seek to prepare internationally recognised graduates for roles that enhance the health and wellbeing of society and to demonstrate leadership in the advancement of the disciplines of nursing and midwifery.
