The Faculty of Health Sciences at Curtin University has started a global search for the next Head of the Curtin School of Nursing. The Faculty, led by Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Archie Clements, exemplifies Curtin’s mission to provide impactful research and industry-aligned courses connected to the workplaces of tomorrow while also encompassing a rich array of backgrounds and cultures in its students and staff.
The Curtin School of Nursing, founded nearly half a century ago, is Australia’s oldest nursing school and is distinguished by a research intensity that sees it ranked in the global top 100 for Nursing (QS 2021).

An accomplished, active researcher with a relevant doctoral qualification, the appointee will have the demonstrable management acumen to instil a culture of excellence but complement this with collegiality and empathy. The appointee will also have a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion as well as to the health, safety and welfare of staff and students.
