SQRH has been established to increase rural health training opportunities for nursing, midwifery and allied health students and health professionals in regional, rural and remote communities.
We are developing the health workforce where it is needed most.
SQRH supports rural health professionals and students to engage in high quality rural health research.

A passionate rural nurse, Dayle Osborn was excited when she heard news of a University Department of Rural Health being established in the region.
“I wanted to be a part of that journey because I have seen first-hand the value of students gaining experience in rural healthcare,” she said.
Dayle began her nursing career straight from school 36 years ago and she has worked rurally for the last 28 years.
“Looking back nursing has provided me with a flexible career path, working around children, moving towns, running a farm and other family commitments.
“I have trained and worked as an Anaesthetic Technician, Midwife, Immunisation Practice Nurse, Nurse Manager, Mental Health Nurse, Nurse Navigator and now as a Clinical Educator with SQRH.
“Working as a rural nurse has provided me with so many opportunities across my full scope of practice, in a way that is different and richer than working in an urban setting.
“I have been privileged to work with some amazing rural health professionals and support staff, and always feel as a rural nurse and midwife that my contributions to my community’s health and wellbeing is valued,” she said.
