The guiding ethos of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health is derived from the Wiradjuri people's phrase "Yindymarra Winhanganha" – the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in. The Wiradjuri people are custodians of the lands upon which many of the University's campuses are located.
The wisdom of the Wiradjuri people is followed University-wide, to support the growth of positive environments for individuals, families, groups and communities.
Likewise, the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health is committed to educating all students to live well and help others to adopt healthy lifestyles in a range of settings. Academic staff are passionate about the transformational nature of education – it is through learning and growth that people achieve their potential!
The courses offered by the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health include undergraduate, postgraduate, and higher degrees by research in nursing, midwifery and Indigenous health.
The strength of these courses lies in the opportunities provided to students to develop personally and also professionally, acquiring the knowledge, attitudes and practical skills needed to work autonomously and also as part of a team, as high-quality health professionals.
While there is a particular need for high-quality health professionals in regional, rural and remote locations, graduates of the School are also in high demand in urban and metropolitan settings, reflecting as they do the resilience and independent thinking for which rural Australians are known.
