“It’s not surprising that Griffith’s nursing and midwifery programs have ranked so high,” says Head of Griffith School of Nursing and Midwifery Professor Debra Anderson. “This result has arisen from the combined approach of the vision of our school to be a global leader in education and research scholarship, alongside the long-standing hard work of staff to achieve this vision. We are delighted at this result.

“The suite of undergraduate and postgraduate programs offered by the school provides a high-quality learning experience through innovative, flexible and evidence-based education to ensure our graduates are well placed to influence and make meaningful lifelong contributions to their communities and society.

“The ranking also confirms the outstanding achievement of our internationally renowned researchers and the high quality and impact of their work. This was recently evidenced by the school recently receiving a top ERA Research Excellence Ranking of 5 for showing ‘well above world standard’.”

“This is a spectacular result and a real reflection of the calibre of our senior researchers and our evidence-based focus on teaching,” added Professor Tony Perkins, Dean (Academic) Health.

“At Griffith, we also have a very strong clinical focus with strong partnerships with providers such as the Gold Coast University Hospital.”

The Griffith nursing and midwifery program achievement comes as the university achieves its best ever result, firmly illustrating its strength across disciplines.

Griffith was ranked in the top 100 institutions worldwide in nine subject areas (up from five in 2015) including a top 50 position in Nursing and Midwifery.
