Julian De Maria

Julian trained in Brisbane and graduated from the Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor’s degree in Nursing. In his first year as an RN, Julian headed to New Zealand to work in the Invercargill base hospital. The following year, Julian returned to Brisbane and continued his nursing practice at the Prince Charles Hospital. There, he specialised in Cardiothoracic nursing and had a deep passion for education and training within the clinical setting. Julian soon found his niche as a Clinical Facilitator of undergraduate student nurses. Continuing on his journey for promoting better bed-side care through staff development initiatives, Julian decided to undertake a master’s degree in Clinical Education. Julian has held positions such as Nurse Education Coordinator, Manager of Education Services and Director of Clinical Services at a private Hospital in Brisbane. During his time as the DON, Julian successfully led the team through a full org wide survey against the NSQHS Standards. Julian is driven to see all people, regardless of race, creed or colour, have appropriate access to individualised, exceptional care and treatment where they are included in the decisions of their care journey.
