The School of Nursing hosted a visit from Dr Barbara Orchard on the 14th April. Barbara is a Medical Alumna of the University of Adelaide and has an interest in the Medical, Nursing and Social aspects of Australian Military History. I sat down with Dr Orchard and School staff to discuss Barbara’s experience as a clinician and her observations of what makes a successful healthcare professional. Listen to the full conversation.
See the AMNS building take shape from the ground up. Live feeds from the building site at West End show our building grow in real time.
It is with great sadness we farewell Taicea Agnew, our School Business Manager. Taicea has been with us since 2010 and she has made a wonderful contribution to the School. Taicea leaves us at the beginning of July and we welcome Julie Sulda to the role. I wish Taicea all the best in her new post at Flinders University.
Amy Abela, Clinical Placement and HWA Project Coordinator is also leaving the School at the beginning of July, Amy has been with us for six months and we thank Amy for her contribution to the School and welcome Racheal Kennedy to the role until the end of this year. Since our last update in March we farewell Sheridan Clark, Executive Officer. As Executive Officer, Sheridan provided fantastic support to the School and myself. Both Amy and Sheridan have taken up positions elsewhere in the University so I wish them all the best and I’m sure we will see them around the campus.
We congratulate Tammy Page and Hepsi Jebaraj who have just completed their PhDs. This is an enormous personal achievement. Colleagues recently sat down with Tammy, read more about what she had to say.
Finally, I would like to wish the final year pre-registration nursing students all the very best with their applications for TPPP positions.
