Every day in Northern NSW our Nurses and Midwives make a difference in somebody's life. Your collaborative advanced practice and broad set of professional skills set you apart from everyday nursing and midwifery and assure that you are unique, tremendously valued and highly sought after.

As regional, rural and remote Nurses and Midwives you are all helping to build strong healthy communities not only in the towns in which you live and work, but also in the professional health communities in which you belong.

I, along with my team look forward to working alongside you to achieve our goals and ensure our patients, their families and the communities which we serve experience first class nursing and midwifery care that is delivered in a compassionate, supportive and collaborative environment.
