​The Hunter New England Nursing and Midwifery Research Centre (NMRC) supports practice-based research across the District. 

The NMRC aims to:  

  1. Support and facilitate nurses and midwives to undertake clinical research that enhances evidence-based practice in health service delivery, patient experience and outcomes.

  2. Provide leadership to strengthen the Nursing and Midwifery research culture within the organisation.

  3. Contribute to building and strengthening systems and processes to support nurses and midwives undertaking research and research translation.


The NMRC's Mission is to

Promote, enable and normalise Nursing and Midwifery research that arises from clinical practice, responds to individual, family and community needs and is commensurate with the priorities of the LHD and NSW Health.

The NMRC's Vision is to

Conduct clinically based health research and translate evidence into high quality and effective health service delivery led by nurses and midwives within HNELHD.
