Nicki Watts 
Secured CDU Small Innovation Grant to transform soft body ‘baby dolls’ used in simulation to more high fidelity simulation models at low cost.  These dolls now simulate a fetal or newborn heart rate and heart sounds audible through a stethoscope or pinnards/doppler.  This gives the students a more real world experience to undertake fetal or newborn heart rate assessments prior to clinical placement.  They are being used this semester in the simulation weeks.

Sarah Ireland
Sarah finished her PhD in 2016 with CDU. Sarah has worked for a number of research projects but the most notable is her work over the past 3 years working with Lawurrpa Maypilama, the Australian Doula College and the women and Yalu at Galiwinku has been outstanding. Her leadership, engagement, high level of performance and impact has been of a very high level. She is very deserving of this award.

Brittany Newman
Brittany has managed to re-establish collegial relationships with students and clinical partners as well secure new placement opportunities in various states.  Brittany manages student placements as well as Continuity of Midwifery Care experiences for students across all states and territories.  Brittany has been exceptional at building trusting and mututally respectful relationships with students who were feeling very dienfranachised.  Brittany is a valuable member of the both the placements and midwifery team.

    May has been a very busy month that commenced with an ANMAC assessment team visiting our Sydney, Alice Springs, and Casuarina campuses as part of the Bachelor of Nursing accreditation process.  At the conclusion of their visits to each site they provided feedback to staff in attendance.  The team were very positive regarding our staff and physical resources. They highlighted a few areas of concern such as placements and student numbers.  The final comprehensive report is pending that will inform actions going forward within the CNM.
