Course summary

The Bachelor of Nursing offers an outstanding combination of practical training while building knowledge about health, diagnosis, care plan development, care delivery and disease. This course responds to contemporary nursing practice and builds knowledge and skills in professional nursing, biological sciences and social sciences. Students learn in state-of-the-art facilities with interactive models and simulation laboratories.

Graduates are equipped to apply sound evidence-based reasoning skills to their nursing practice, provide therapeutic care to patients, coordinate and lead nursing care to individuals and groups, and work independently as well as collaborate in multidisciplinary teams for effective, person-centred outcomes.

An opportunity for a specialised professional experience placement is offered in the final year of the course to expose students to career choices as a nurse.
