International projects

The Vietnam nursing project

The School of Nursing is working to establish a collaborative capacity-building program with the Vietnam Nurses Association (VNA) to strengthen nursing and midwifery services in Vietnam.

This program, funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies, aims to build partnerships with educational institutions, hospitals, government and non-government bodies to improve the standard of nursing education and care in Vietnam through knowledge-exchange and education.

The relationships we build through this program are essential for creating and maintaining sustainable outcomes that are mutually beneficial for Vietnam and Australia.

For further information about this project, contact Professor Genevieve Gray.
