The College of Nursing and Health Sciences is an innovator in contemporary education and is at the heart of advanced learning across the health sector including nursing, midwifery, disability, allied health and health sciences. With over 40 years’ experience in nursing, midwifery, speech pathology and nutrition and dietetics education, and over 30 years' experience in disability education, Flinders are leaders in the health education sector.
With strong partnerships in both industry and community, our mission is to produce a safer and more resilient health and social care workforce, producing some of Australia’s most enterprising health and care graduates.
In August 2019, Flinders launched the Caring Futures Institute - Australia’s first fully dedicated research centre for the study of self-care and caring solutions leading to better lives, better communities, better care and better systems. Caring is a fundamental element of an inclusive, compassionate and thriving society.
The incredible research that is already underway within the Institute involves a highly collaborative approach with industry, health professionals and communities to pioneer outcome-driven research that makes a positive impact on people’s lives.
We are focussed on driving the connection of this outcome-driven research to the education of our current and future workforce, improving lives, empowering communities and enable better health and caring in the world.
