Community Engagement and Partnerships

The School of Nursing and Midwifery plays an active role in community engagement through activities in learning and teaching, research and service. We strive to remain connected with our industry partners and communities as they play a crucial role in helping us deliver quality courses that are matched to the needs of our students and the profession. We are often described as a school of innovation and 'can do' attitude. Our campuses in Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg and Noosa continue to grow and each facilitate engagement through a range of activities at local, national and international level.

Our aim in Community Engagement is to:

  • Promote engagement strategies and activities that are relevant, innovative, and value-adding
  • Provide and promote what we do to potential students, existing students, staff and community partners
  • Provide a mechanism for discussion and opportunities around engagement
  • Disseminate what we do through 'Innovate' our school of nursing and midwifery magazine.

Some of our key activities include:

  • Building on collaborative relationships with industry partners
  • International nurses day
  • International nursing placements in Nepal
  • A conference marking 20 years since the School began in 2012
  • Engagement activities in Simulation including MASK ED™ (KRS Simulation).
