School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Sciences
The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Sciences offers a range of vocational education and training certificates, and undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, across a number of health disciplines, via on-campus or flexible education with online study.
The School leads the way for Bachelor of Nursing, and Bachelor of Midwifery (Graduate Entry) students and boasts a strong professoriate with portfolios in learning and teaching, research and community engagement. Alongside these structures are the positions of Heads of Courses and a strong Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Team, committed to the practical learning experience.
Practical learning is enhanced through the application of Mask Ed, a simulation technique developed by CQUniversity's Professor Kerry Reid-Searl. The added benefit of cultural experiences is provided in countries such as Nepal, India and Cambodia through the School's Short-Term Mobility Program.
The School's teachers and lecturers have a strong focus on student learning and place an ever-growing emphasis on research, with many actively engaged in research projects that inform their teaching practices.
