Head of the School of Nursing and Midwifery: Professor Wendy Cross
Welcome to the website of the Monash University School of Nursing and Midwifery (SNM).
The School of Nursing and Midwifery offers high quality programs in a vibrant and supportive learning environment to prepare students for a rewarding career in health care.
One of the largest schools for the education of nurses and midwives in Australia, the SoNM offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses at four Monash campuses – Berwick, Clayton, Gippsland and Peninsula – as well as off-campus.
Programs are developed in collaboration with the School's professional partners to be responsive to the needs of the health care industry and engaging for students.
The School's postgraduate programs prepare students for advanced general and specialist practice in a range of clinical areas. Programs can be tailored to suit individual career aspirations, particularly in the areas of education, paediatrics, mental health, critical care, emergency, medical surgical, older persons nursing, palliative care and midwifery.
Research activity continues to be a major focus of the School's academics. Our Research Strategic Plan articulates the School's four major research foci: palliative care; mental health; nursing and midwifery advancement; and scholarship of nursing education.
Research findings are published in books and journals and are often incorporated into the School's education programs and curriculum development.
Strong recruitment and nurturing of younger academic staff have contributed to the development of the School's international research profile.
I encourage you to explore our website to learn about our School's undergraduate and postgraduate programs, our research and scholarship foci and our outstanding staff.
