2020 has been designated by the World Health Assembly as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife and we feature Adjunct Professor Sue Hawes in this newsletter to acknowledge the importance of our professions. The value of both the nursing and midwifery professions has never been more evident as the world responds to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The College researchers continue to perform well with another publication in The Lancet from The Molly Wardaguga Research Team. If you are a higher degree research student or an academic researcher then read about joining in the fun ‘Get Baked!’ competition to celebrate CDU research week.
The College is continually growing and we feature our new Professor in Primary Health Care – Professor Sue Kruske who is a joint appointment with Northern Territory Health and based at CDU Alice Springs Campus. We also shine the spotlight on new academic staff member Dr Margaret [Meg] Yen based at CDU Sydney Campus.
Congratulations to undergraduate student – Bronwyn Chenery on her Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarship.
The College continues to expand our academic courses and we have unprecedented demand for this semester as health and nursing is seen as a recession proof career choice during the Covid-19 pandemic. Read about some of our new and exciting postgraduate courses for this year and 2021.
We will continue to share all the inspiring good news stories with you, and keep you informed of College activities and future plans. If you are a student, alumni, clinical partner or a key stakeholder please join our CDU community to connect, discover and grow.
