Course Description

This double degree will allow you to graduate with two qualifications. Not only will you gain the skills and knowledge needed to become a registered nurse but you will also gain the ability to work as a paramedic.

The Bachelor of Nursing is known for producing adaptable, safe and ethical nurses – in fact, more nurses graduate from ACU than anywhere else in Australia. We use learner–centred approaches including case studies and situation–based learning to enhance students’ experiences as well as their readiness for the workplace.

The Bachelor of Paramedicine will teach you how to analyse situations and react appropriately, whether it’s a cardiovascular emergency or dealing with someone in trauma.
