CEO's message
unnamed (1).png

This has been a challenging year for everyone and we could not have worked our way through this without partnering with our key stakeholders.  I would like to thank our major partners, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia who have worked with the ANMAC Board to find ways to support nursing and midwifery students to complete their studies this year.  The Council of Deans of Nursing and Midwifery and RTOs have been ready to meet with us regularly and we value those relationships highly.

Thank you to the members of the assessment teams  who assess nursing and midwifery programs across Australia  and the Accreditation Committees who have attended monthly meetings to review program outcomes.  

Congratulations to all the nursing and midwifery students who have graduated this year and will be excited to have finished their studies and now put those skills into practice.  I look forward to working with the staff next year after their well-earned Christmas break.

This leaves me to wish you a happy Christmas, happy holiday break  and a safe new year with your families and friends.
