The School provides excellence in teaching and research across the disciplines of nursing, midwifery and paramedic science. With a strong emphasis on inter-professional learning and engagement with health agencies, students have opportunities to work closely with health services and health professionals to develop professional attributes and skills during their coursework that enable them to be job ready. The region’s health services have rapidly expanded to now include the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital and the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

The School aims to maximise interdisciplinary research collaboration and engage in research focused on delivering health outcomes to the local, national and international community and make a genuine difference in people’s lives.

USC is seeking to appoint a senior academic to join our dedicated team and contribute to the leadership, strategic development and engagement of our academic staff across the School. This appointment will also have an important and active role in teaching across our undergraduate and postgraduate nursing programs as well as being expected to make a major contribution to our research programs.
