About the speaker


Yvette Story  - Clinical Midwife Educator | Centre for Education and Research | Royal Hobart Hospital |Tasmanian Health Service

I have had the best career imaginable! I commenced my nursing and midwifery Journey in August 1984(PTS 8/85 at the Royal Hobart Hospital) – Yep 40 years in August!! And what a ride it has been! I could never imagine the experiences I have had! After completing my Registered Nurse Training, I worked for 12 months and then commenced my midwifery training at St Marys Hospital in Manchester – What an eye opener this was for a 22-year-old! After a few years working as a staff midwife, I came home. I could not believe it when I returned in the early 90’s I could not get a job as a midwife! I eventually did and I worked at the RHH Queen Alexandra hospital, then 3 separate people said to me ‘ you should go and work in Kununurra’ – I at the time I did not have a clue where it was, but applied for a job anyway – and this was the start of one of the best experiences of my professional and personal life – the rural and remote – midwives & rusty nurse! After nearly 8 years of the experience of a lifetime working in a variety of setting both Government and NGO’s. I returned in Tassie, and what a culture shock that was! It took a while to settle, I became the Clinical Midwifery Educator at Calvary, then by default became the learning and Development Co- Ordinator. The second highlight of my career was being the Clinical Midwifery Educator at the RHH, I have been in the role for close to 10 years now and I just love supporting and nurturing the health care workers of the future. Who knows what the last long chapter will bring …. What I do know is that it will be filled with genuine care for all around me with fun and laughter and a little bit of cheekiness.
