“Nursing has given me the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. I wake up every morning excited.”

Katie East

Bachelor of Nursing

Nurses play a critical role in providing health services and are often the first point of care in their communities, as we have seen on a global scale during the COVID-19 crisis. Nursing is a career where you can make a positive different in the lives of others every day.

Our nursing courses respond to contemporary practice and builds knowledge and skills in professional nursing, biological sciences and social sciences.

You will be taught in state-of-the-art facilities, including laboratories that simulate authentic healthcare settings with realistic animated mannequins. The courses will develop your ability to apply knowledge and evidence-based clinical reasoning skills to a 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.

Your employment prospects as a Southern Cross University graduate are excellent — 96 per cent of our nursing graduates find employment within four months of graduation (QILT, 2019).
