Message from the Dean

With over 4000 students and CDU staff located across Australia and internationally, the College of Nursing and Midwifery is one of the largest university providers of online education for nurses and midwives.

We aspire to produce excellent graduates who will become the next generation of nursing and midwifery leaders in their chosen career path.

Studying at CDU means you are part of a community of scholars that engage with the latest online learning technologies and benefit from clinical teaching in actual health settings and clinical training suites located across Australia in either Darwin, Alice Springs, Sydney, Perth or Melbourne.

We were the first University to offer online undergraduate degrees in nursing and midwifery, and we have a range of new postgraduate and continuing professional development programs to meet alumni demand.

We also partner with international Universities to offer student exchange and collaborative research opportunities. Our Molly Wardaguga Research Centre focuses on improving health outcomes for Aboriginal mothers and babies by reducing pre-term birth rates. We also specialise in research in Primary Health Care, Mental Health, Cancer and Chronic Conditions.

We are values-driven, delivering quality, innovative teaching programs and engaging in high impact research outcomes that make a difference in the lives of people in the Northern Territory, Australia and internationally. Join us to connect, discover and grow.
