Nursing Fellows

Featured at the Welcome held at UniSA are the four Nursing Australia Awards Fellows from Myanmar who are in Adelaide for eight weeks.

The Adelaide Nursing School in collaboration with the School of Nursing and Midwifery, The University of South Australia are delighted to be hosting four Australia Award Fellows from Myanmar. The initiative is financially supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). We look forward to working with them and trust that the time spent here will be personally beneficial in terms of their development goals but will also help to strengthen partnerships and develop capacity by advancing key development issues in liaison with their employers on return to Myanmar. The fellows will be in Adelaide until 16 June 2017.
The nursing and midwifery fellows are educators and academics from the Yangon and Mandalay regions in Myanmar.
