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

Nurses play a critical, frontline role in healthcare. They transform lives every day. 

Southern Cross University's nursing courses respond to contemporary practice and community need, building 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. You will also 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 and collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams for effective, person-centred outcomes. 

Learning under our unique Southern Cross Model, you can focus your study, achieve milestones more quickly and know that your employment prospects are excellent – 96 per cent of our nursing graduates find employment within four months of graduation (QILT, 2019).
