Nursing and Midwifery

-

"One of the favourite parts of my role as the Head of Monash Nursing and Midwifery is recognising our future nurse and midwife leaders, and I am exceptionally proud that so many of you are receiving Student Awards this year.  I don’t need to remind anybody of the challenges that the last 12 months or so have presented but I can confidently say that you, our nursing and midwifery students have “Led Change” in the Monash way and risen to those challenges. I feel certain that you will go on to change nursing and midwifery for the benefit of all. Congratulations."

Professor Debra Griffiths
