Dr Betty Andersen was awarded an Honorary doctorate from the University of Newcastle and in 1986 she was awarded an Order of Australia (AM) for her service to nursing education. Betty Andersen, now retired, was a registered nurse and midwife who trained in the 1950s and devoted her working life to nurse education and practice in numerous Australian and international settings. Her missionary work in Bangladesh caused her to explore the manner in which nurses needed to continuously deal with novel situations.
The staff and students of the School of Nursing and Midwifery warmly congratulate Professor Margaret McMillan on being awarded an Order of Australia Medal for her service to medical education and nursing through a range of academic and executive roles.
