Welcome to the Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club
Our club was chartered on the 22nd of December 2020 in the former District 9630, at the end of the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.  If you are a Nursing or Midwifery professional who wants to make positive changes to your community and the world, then this is the club for you.  Our club members are Nursing and Midwifery professionals who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group of Nursing colleagues who share your drive to make a difference in the world.

Our Members come from all over the Globe


Why Members have joined...

" I have worked in a few countries where I have seen a great need for medical assistance and the shortage of trained medical staff to meet the health needs of locals. 
Joining and being part of Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club (GNMRC) is a great privilege to be able to reach people globally where empowerment can be achieved through the provision of basic human needs such as:
  • Clean drinking water in rural and remote areas
  • Prevention of communicable diseases through immunisation programmes.
  • Education to empower the next generation through change.
Joining the GNMRC allows me to participate actively to achieve these goals with my fellow global nursing colleagues." - Priscilla
"The foundation of our profession is based on collegiality and fellowship.  I have joined the Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club to share a global experience through networking that the group has to offer. 
The roles that we play in communities earns us the highest trust levels of any profession. Sharing our experiences and knowledge between each other better equips us and enables us to continue to be the cornerstone of healthcare world-wide. 
There is not a human on this planet that is not touched or cared for by a nurse and or midwife. I want to meet you and share our stories." - Shelley

Presenting one of our fabulous Rotarians, Jason Dawson

Jason is a Registered Nurse from the Gold Coast Queensland. Whilst studying his bachelor of Nursing at Southern Cross University he developed an interest in mental health and has been working in this field of nursing since completing his studies.
In this time Jason has undertaken varied roles including Acute Inpatient Nursing, Community Nursing, clinical facilitating and clinical facilitation. Jason has also gained great experience in Nurse unit Manager positions allowing him to embody both clinical and management roles. Responsible for employee and consumer satisfaction alike, staffing, budgeting as well as safety and quality function responsibilities.
In 2012 Jason combined his passion for nursing with his love of travel by co-founding CPD Cruises Pty Ltd, known by most as Education At Sea. The idea behind Education At Sea is to provide the opportunity for Nurses and Midwives to network, update and improve their skill sets in a new and diverse manner. This is done by taking conference cruises in numerous global locations and providing an exciting and educational trip that is unique in its own right, and the first of its kind in Australia. One of the most satisfying of the this role is the opportunity to meet and support Nursing colleagues in many developing countries around world, such as Cambodia, Vietnam, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific islands.  Their unique programs allow you to combine real education, relaxation, and all the fun of cruising. We like to say that it’s serious fun.
“I can see that Rotary has done so much  to give something back to the community, whilst improving networking and business opportunities.  This is the first time in history that a Rotary Club has been created for Nurses and Midwives. I believe this is a great step forward and cannot wait to see all of the results
and benefits it provides for the Nursing and Midwifery professions.”

We are excited to announce that 3 Rotary Solar cases will soon be heading to Papua New Guinea!!  

The Rotary Solar cases are critically needed in many parts of the world. They provide so much more than life saving light. Proud to announce with the support of Rotary Club of Brisbane Inner West, 3 cases are currently being made in Australia ready to be sent to midwives in isolated areas of Papua New Guinea.
