Margaret SullivanMargaret Sullivan

Margaret (Peg) Sullivan was a Queensland Nurse who, from 1961 to 1970, specialised in Paediatric Nursing in the Children’s Ward of St. Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital, Brisbane.

Margaret Sullivan was herself the recipient of several scholarships to study and advance clinical practice. Her colleagues began this fund as a memorial to her contribution to the well being and health care of children and families.

It aims to enable nurses working with children and young people to undertake research fostering continuing improvement in children’s healthcare.
