What's on for students at Sydney Nursing School


We hope you can join us throughout the year for this special seminar series called Lunchtime Legends, where we invite you to lunch and a stimulating discussion about what it takes to be a leader in nursing and midwifery. There are two seminars each semester.

Health Care Team Challenge Competition 2014

Now in its 4th year, The University of Sydney Health Care Team Challenge brings together students from the Faculties of Health Sciences, Pharmacy, Sydney Medical School and Sydney Nursing School. Inter-professional student teams compete against each other to promote and demonstrate excellence in health care management.

Teams submit a video demonstrating their team’s interprofessional approach in developing a healthcare plan for a case. Videos are reviewed by an expert panel. This year, the winning team will receive $1200 prize money and an opportunity to have their winning video presentation show cased across the University of Sydney.

The Health Care Team Challenge is a great opportunity for students to meet students from other courses and faculties; gain inter-professional experience; develop teamwork skills; and expand professional knowledge. Skills gained are invaluable when applying for jobs in the future.
