    Associate Professor Caroline Nilson
    PhD, RN, RM

    Academic in Nursing

    About me

    I commenced my academic position with Murdoch University in October 2005 and my professional domain is nursing and midwifery. As an Associate Professor in the College of Science, Health, Engineering and Engineering, Discipline of Nursing, I have coordinated and taught units in both the Undergraduate Bachelor of Nursing program and the previously available Postgraduate Master of Midwifery program. My teaching is supported by thirty years of clinical nursing and midwifery experience, in Africa, England and Australia.

    I graduated as a Registered Nurse in 1979 and a Registered Midwife in 1980 having completed two hospital based diplomas. In 1996 I graduated from Curtin University of Technology having completed the Bachelor on Nursing conversion course. I upgraded my diploma in Midwifery to a Bachelor degree in 2008 at Flinders University and I completed my Master of Nursing (by research) in 2011 at Murdoch University. I continued on with my research journey and completed my PhD studies in 2016.

    My teaching philosophy is based on the centrality of the caring relationship. As nursing and midwifery are both an art and a science, I seek to provide a learning experience that addresses all four attributes of a nurse’s knowledge: the personal, aesthetic, empirical and the ethical. I consider that with this approach nurses and midwives are able to bring to society and health care, their skills, knowledge and compassion.

    Research areas

    A researcher in the Murdoch University Ngangk Yira Research Centre for Aboriginal Health and Social Equity: Deadly Koolinga Chef Program – Current: The Deadly Koolinga Chef Program (DKCP) is an Aboriginal community based children and adolescent’s cooking and nutrition program that aims to build nutritional health literacy for improved and sustained health and well-being. The DKCP development has been in collaborative consultation with Aboriginal community Elders, Aboriginal community organisations, Local Government and relevant Health Departments. The program caters for 6 – 12 year old children on a weekly basis through the school terms, with workshops for adolescents (13 – 18 years) throughout the four year duration of the research initiative.  A volunteer Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service (ACCHS) from each region of WA delivers the DKCP, resulting in eight research settings across the state. The classes at each ACCHS are facilitated by an Aboriginal Health Worker upskilled in nutrition and dietetics. Each class/workshop carters for 10-15 children/adolescents, and each week participants take home a meal for 4-6 people. For inclusion and equity in participation, there is a roster system for participants and support/assistance rosters for parents/carers to engage with the activities and support the children. Murdoch University coordinates the DKCP, providing the participating ACCHSs with all necessary resources for the cooking classes, and training for the research processes. A community based action research approach will underpin qualitative and quantitative data collection, and realist evaluation of the program. From the research findings a WA Aboriginal nutrition health promotion framework will inform the translation of the DKCP to other ACCHSs across WA.

    Master of Nursing (Research) (Completion 2011) – Critical thinking development in children through the creative arts

    Current projects

    The Bindjareb Yorgas Health Program (BYHP) is a collaborative health promotion project with the Pinjarra Murray District Aboriginal Association (MDAA), and responds to concerns and issues that compromise their community’s health.

    The BYHP contributes to the health and well-being of the Bindjareb community in Pinjarra by developing health literacy in nutrition and cooking skills and knowledge. Enhanced understanding and skills, will translate to families in the community, who can then tackle the ill health burden using preventative measures they themselves have engineered. In addition, identifying environments that encourage Aboriginal participation and nurture both attitudes and aptitudes of good health behaviours may have positive implications on future policy development and infrastructure planning related to Aboriginal health.

    Continued collaboration with the MDAA to enable further research to capture longitudinal data from the health promotion programs are being proposed. The next project proposes to explore if the parents and families of the Bindjareb children attending the Deadly Koolinga Chef Program, an off shoot of the BYHP, have identified any perceived health or behaviour benefits.

    Professional and community service

    Service to the Community

    As a nurse and midwife I value my work as a  promise to serve my community. This connection can be made when we understand that nurses are associated with providing health education and health promotion to build individual, family and community knowledge and skill to maintain health and well being.

    2012 – Ongoing

    Collaborating with Pinjarra Bindjareb Women to develop a suite of health programs, which have been identified by them as being important to address health issues in their community. The objectives are:

    • To develop the knowledge base necessary to implement good food into everyday life;
    • To develop the knowledge base of the importance of physical activity in maintaining health and well being; and
    • To participate in community owned projects aimed at building individual, social and community capacity.

    2011 – Ongoing

    Conducting cooking classes (Deadly Koolinga Chef Program) with Pinjarra Bindjareb children aged 11 & 12. The objectives are to:

    • Develop knowledge in healthy nutrition to maintain good health;
    • Equip children with cooking skills to last a lifetime;
    • Boost self-confidence and self-esteem through new learned cooking skills; and
    • Develop skills in planning for meals using decision making skills and problem solving skills (critical thinking skills an essential attribute for adult life).

    2007 – Ongoing

    Volunteer tutor of the Eyes Wide Open Program (EWO) (Peel Youth Service). The EWO Program is for pregnant teens and young mothers.Parenting commitments and not being able to take their babies to school prevent them from accessing the curriculum and achieving their potential in a main stream learning environment. The aims of the program are to:

    • Provide learning opportunities to learn about pregnancy and birthing to enable informed choices;
    • Teach positive parenting skills aimed at building effective parenting and relationship skills;
    • Developing skills for economic self reliance;
    • Providing a pathway to complete secondary schooling to enable tertiary education options.
