Aunty Kerrie Doyle

Aunty Kerrie is an ‘old school’ registered nurse, first graduating from Gosford District Hospital in 1977, and has worked in various clinical, executive, and academic positions since then, and still works clinically. The first Aboriginal nurse graduate from the University of Oxford, she is currently the inaugural Associate Dean and Professor of Indigenous health at the School of Medicine at Western Sydney University, and Academic Lead for Indigenous research at Maridjulu Budyari Gumal (SPHERE), a collaborative of 14 leading research organisations across Sydney, but Aunty Kerrie considers her son graduating as an RN to be the best thing in her life!  So who is Aunty Kerrie – she is a nurse, and loves it!
