Course Description

Our three-year nursing degree gives you practical experience from first year. You'll graduate ready to register with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as a Registered Nurse.

Your hands-on experience begins at our on-campus hospital simulation centres and extends to supervised experience in hospitals and healthcare agencies. Metropolitan senior students will study at one of our clinical schools in leading Victorian hospitals like The Alfred, The Austin, Royal Melbourne and The Northern.

You'll cover practical nursing subjects like bioscience, long-term critical illness and Indigenous health as you learn to care for people of all ages with long-term conditions, emergency health care needs and mental health care needs. You'll also learn how to manage your time, lead teams, manage caseloads and make ethical clinical decisions with a compassionate and caring approach.

You may be eligible for a La Trobe scholarship or a scholarship from the Australian College of Nursing to support your studies. Our student exchange program may also offer overseas study opportunities with one of our partner universities around the world.
