Notre Dame’s School of Nursing held its inaugural public Oration on Monday 7 October 2008.

Professor Linda Worrall-Carter, the Director of St Vincent’s/Australian Catholic University National Centre for Nursing Research delivered the oration titled: Clinical partnerships in nursing: The future of nursing research.

Professor Worrall-Carter has had extensive experience in the area of nursing research and particularly on creating research and clinical partnerships for both Health Services and Universities nationally and internationally.

The Oration was attended by key stakeholders in nursing and nursing research at both national and State level.

Professor Selma Alliex, Dean of the School of Nursing was very pleased with the opportunity to host the Oration.

“To have a speaker of such high calibre as Professor Worrall-Carter has set a great precedent for future Orations. We were delighted to partner with the Office of the Chief Nursing Officer, Department of Health and St John of God Healthcare in hosting this Oration. It is intended that the Oration will be an annual event and will be held on the 7th of October each year to commemorate the St John of God Foundation Day.”
