Graduation at Curtin University
As a midwife and a lecturer it is a really rewarding time to the year.... the culmination of years of study for the students, their graduation day... it is so nice to see them in their regalia, excited, relieved,enthusiastic and awakened. It is a great sense of achievement for them and for me a sense of pleasure that they have completed this journey and graduated. Now the next journey begins.....
Congratulations to all the Postgraduate Diploma Midwifery (27) and Masters (5)Students its great achievement, well done.
The Australian College of Midwives Membership Award was won by Ms Jacqueline Mawson.
King Edward Memorial Hospital for Women clinical Midwifery Prize was won by Ms Maree Edwards.
Now the journey continues, lifelong learning.... for some they begin as Registered Midwives....consolidating their midwifery program into practice facilitating and empowering women during their pregnancy birth journey.....and after a year or two they may embark on the next step... "MASTERS'.
The masters graduates will endeavour to put into place the work they have completed and as leaders they will continue to lead by example...empowering women.. and continue the journey of lifelong learning.
