Welcome from the Dean, School of Nursing and Midwifery

Elaine Pavlos

On behalf of the staff in the School of Nursing and Midwifery I would like to welcome you into our community. This is a community that prides itself on the quality of education and its pastoral care mission. In its short history, the School has achieved many milestones. Prominent amongst these is its reputation for providing quality clinical education to its undergraduate students. This three-year course includes a minimum of 1120 hours of clinical practice in areas ranging from aged care to critical care. This program is truly comprehensive with its aim to expose students to a wide variety of clinical experiences. An important aspect of this clinical education, which is novel to Western Australia and to most other parts of the country, is the use of mentors who, in most cases, provide one-on-one or team clinical supervision for our students.

The School also has a reputable Post Graduate Department with courses ranging from Graduate Certificates to a Doctorate of Nursing program. The aim of the Post Graduate Department is to provide further and continuing education to nurses with or without previous degrees.
