Welcome to the University of Notre Dame Australia and to the School of Nursing.  First, I would like to acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Land on which we work and study, as the First people of this Country, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. It is upon their ancestral lands that Notre Dame Darlinghurst and Sydney Campus stands.

The School of Nursing prides itself on producing graduates who are equipped to provide quality nursing care in any health care setting, who are committed to upholding the rights of the individual and to maintain patient dignity at all times. We focus on values and fostering the student’s capacity to act on the values of the nursing profession.

Programmes offered at the Sydney campus are taught by academics and clinicians who bring a wealth of contemporary experience in both education and nursing. There is a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge that nurtures the development of competent and capable nurses who are equipped to practice in a diverse range of clinical settings both within and beyond the hospital.

Our focus on critical thinking, clinical reasoning, work integrated learning and industry engagement ensures that our graduates are ready to meet the challenges of the future. We believe that by joining us at Notre Dame you will be undertaking one of the best nursing programs in Sydney.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Notre Dame Sydney community soon.
