Launched and open to nurses, midwives and students across Australia

Nurse & Midwife Support launched on March 8, 2017 at an event at Melbourne Town Hall. Representatives from the nursing and midwifery profession from across Australia were invited to celebrate the launch of the service.  There was a lot of excitement in the room about this long anticipated service, and the support it will give to nurses, midwives and students of the profession.

Debra Thoms, Commonwealth Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer officially opened the service in a ribbon cutting ceremony.  “It is with great pleasure that I launch Nurse & Midwife Support,” she said.
