Margaret is Director Accreditation Services at the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC). Marg’s team is responsible for developing and reviewing accreditation standards that govern nursing and midwifery education programs that lead to registration or endorsement with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. The accreditation services team assesses accreditation applications using the standards and monitors programs over the accreditation period.
