Celebrating 30 Years
of Leading Change


2020 has been named as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife by the World Health Organization, marks the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale AND if that wasn’t enough it’s the year when we turn 30!

Monash University merged with Chisholm Technical College in July 1990 and since then, when our first students of the Bachelor of Applied Science (Nursing) graduated, we have been at the forefront of nursing education, educating nearly 13,000 nurses and midwives - That’s about 400 per year for the last 30 years!

And it’s you, our graduates that continue to show how beneficial a Monash education can be. As you make your mark in the world of healthcare, we continue to develop, striving to build upon our strong reputation - ranking 17th in the world* for nursing, and 1st in Victoria - continuing to educate the best nurses and midwives.

Lead Change with Monash Nursing and Midwifery.

To celebrate our 30th year, we are taking time to look back, and acknowledge the achievements of you, our alumni, and look forward to the next 30 years with a Garden Party, to be held on Saturday 20th February 2020, from 2pm-5pm on the lawn outside the Library (Building A) at Peninsula Campus.

We know things have changed since our beginnings, so during the party, we are holding tours of our newly refurbished state-of-the-art Clinical Learning Environments, so you can see and get a feeling of how these new spaces contribute successfully to the education of today's nurses and midwives.

It will be an afternoon of great celebrations and perhaps some reunions. Places are limited, so get in early and book your ticket to this spectacular event now – we look forward to seeing you there!


We’d love you to help us showcase the history of Nursing and Midwifery at Monash University – especially in those early years. We’re looking for stories and pictures from our students’ time at Monash Nursing and Midwifery and we’re hoping to highlight some of these memories via our social media, and as part of the range of events we have planned to mark this celebratory year.

So please send us your photos and memories, as we’d love to hear from you - your story is our story.


Nursing and midwifery is more than a profession, it’s a community! So make the most of your experience as a Monash Graduate and network with like-minded people.

In the future, we plan to hold masterclasses, ‘in conversation’ events, reunions and much more, and would love you to be involved!

Make sure all your details are up to date and on our systems so that you get to hear about what we have planned. Be part of our future community, you won’t want to miss out!
