From the Executive Director

"In 2007, I was appointed to the position of Executive Director of Nursing and I am delighted to lead an organisation that has such a long and proud history in nursing.

Melbourne Health is widely recognised as a supportive work environment for nurses with enormous opportunity for professional growth in both clinical and leadership roles. Our nurses demonstrate an extensive depth of talent, pride and clinical knowledge, a culture that was clearly evident from the moment I commenced in the organisation.

During 2008 our nurses were recognised for their talent and extraordinary achievement through a number of awards. These included the AH Wall prize, the National Hesta Nursing Awards, the State Nursing Excellence awards and a number of travelling scholarships in honour of former Royal Melbourne Hospital nurses.

You can find more information on the services of most interest to you on the web site and I encourage you to take the time to explore the many opportunities available to you. We are always keen to share our passion for caring and our desire to achieve the extraordinary with other nurses."
