The Nursing and Midwifery Office (NMO), led by the Chief Nurse and Midwifery Officer Ms Jennifer Hurley, sets the strategic direction of the nursing and midwifery professions in South Australia.
The NMO achieves this through engagement, partnership and collaboration with more than 33,000 South Australian nurses and midwives who work across the private and public sectors, the education sector, and other health care-related industries. Consumers and other key stakeholders also play a vital role in informing the work of the NMO.
The Nursing and Midwifery Office is a part of the System Leadership and Design group and works in an inter-professional collaborative model with the Office of the Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Allied and Scientific Health Advisor's Office, all members of the Clinical Collaborative.
The Nursing and Midwifery Office is committed to the values of SA Health and supports the embedding of health reform priorities, culture, best practice and the provision of professional nursing and midwifery leadership.
The Nursing and Midwifery Office oversees the provision of professional nursing and midwifery advice and influences the development of the nursing and midwifery professions within South Australia.
A Unique & Vital Contribution – Nursing Model of Care South Australia
The Nursing Model of Care South Australia (PDF 201KB) is a principles and evidence based model that provides a framework and reference to guide and inform the design and development of any nursing model of care in South Australia. It is a first for South Australia, enabling consistency in outcomes and allowing nurses and the community to understand the value, expectations and impact of the nursing profession within the healthcare team/service. The Model (hyperlink) provides a consistent structure for use by those working in, developing, managing and evaluating health services, allowing for customisation in complexity and variability of health population needs and practice settings. The Nursing Model of Care aligns to and is influenced by the Nursing and Midwifery Strategic Directions 2019-2022.
