The School of Nursing is incredibly proud of Fleur Tuthill, a Master of Clinical Nursing graduate, for being awarded the Graduate Nurse of the Year award at Coffs Harbour Hospital. Fleur was a part of the first cohort to graduate from the Master of Clinical Nursing program. Here is what Fleur has to say, ‘The award was very unexpected but I am very proud to have been selected against all the locally trained New South Wales nurses. Thanks for putting together such a good program that has enabled me to succeed here in NSW!’

Congratulations Fleur!

The School was fortunate to have Dr Barbara Orchard visit on Tuesday 14 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.

Dean, Professor Alison Kitson 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. Everyone will be able to take something away from this conversation. We thoroughly enjoyed having Barbara in the School and look forward to her visiting again and sharing her wisdom and experience with students next time.
