What's our story? What excites us? What motivates us? What inspires us?

Is it...

Reputation? Publication? Education? Innovation? Connection? Impact?

Well, yes... but it's also more than that.

At its heart our story is people, with passion.

You, me, teachers, researchers, professional and project staff, research assistants and officers, nurses, midwives, public health professionals, health services managers, sports and exercise scientists, industry partners, undergraduates, graduates, postgraduates, and every person we connect with, through teaching, learning, researching, collaborating, partnering, caring.

Both here and throughout the world.

Over the last five years, we've seen our story grow.

We've gone from 85 research publications a year... to over 300. From 2275 students... to 3350. From 66 HDR students... to 136.

Our teaching and learning reputation is among the best in the country.

Our nurse academic team includes 25% of Australia's leading nurse authors and we're continuing to grow our research strength in health services and practice.

Our health care simulation facility is world-leading and our International Leadership Program in Complementary Medicine Research is a world first with 20 international fellows selected from a highly competitive field.

Since being designated as a WHO Collaborating Centre we've supported more than 50 nursing, midwifery and workforce projects in 20 countries and for the next 4 years we're leading the 43 WHOCCs worldwide.

Our international projects have helped train 150 new midwives in PNG and have made a positive difference to maternal health care throughout the Pacific.

We've been awarded a score of ERA 5 for our research work in nursing, midwifery and human movement & sports science the highest achievable.

And now, we're: growing connection, growing collaboration, growing leadership in research, growing our impact.

We're growing our story... We're growing excellence.
