Study Options

The School of Health Professions aims to produce highly skilled graduates who possess professional, up-to-date clinical practice competencies to meet the health needs and priorities of the community in multidisciplinary settings.

Nursing

Completion of a Bachelor of Nursing will take three years with full-time study or part-time equivalent and must be completed in six years. The addition of clinical placement units in summer and winter study periods means you will complete 81 credit points.

During your second and third year, you will undertake units that are focused on research skills relevant to your degree. Research, communication and problem solving abilities are highly valued by employers, so we aim to 'future proof' your education by providing you with the skills required for undertaking life-long learning.
