Dr Rosie Nash began her career as a clinical pharmacist and has over 12 years experience working in hospital and community pharmacies in Australia and the UK.
Since 2004 she has had regular appointments in a teaching capacity for the University of Tasmania. In 2013 Rosie commenced her PhD examining the role of competency standards to facilitate self-assessment and student centred learning with pharmacy students, with her thesis culminating almost a decade of experience in pharmacy education. Her contribution to the sector was recognised in 2014, receiving a Vice-Chancellor’s award for teaching excellence for being an agent for Quality Assurance of teaching and learning initiatives that assure graduates are competent lifelong learners.

She has experience in Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) compliance, Assurance of Learning, curriculum mapping, international benchmarking reviews and design of online and face-to-face support tools for higher educators.
In 2013 Rosie established the Quality Pursuit project – a UTAS wide Community of Practice which shared expertise on the Quality Enhancement of Higher Education and Scholarship of Learning and Teaching. The project attracted University funding and raised Rosie’s profile nationally and internationally.
In 2017, Rosie launched the HealthLit4Kids pilot to improve the Health Literacy of Tasmanian School Children and their communities. This was in collaboration with Dr Shandell Elmer, DHHS, Menzies and the Faculty of Education.
