Course Description

QUT was the first provider of tertiary nurse education in Queensland. Our course content reflects emerging developments in healthcare and nursing practice that have been identified through consultation with industry partners, discipline experts and research literature.

Foundation studies build your knowledge in key areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and will introduce you to professional nursing practice and contemporary healthcare service. You will also develop an understanding of pharmacology with an emphasis on quality use of medicines. These studies are complemented with opportunities to apply nursing theory to clinical practice in our on campus facilities and in clinical placements off campus.

Graduates of this degree are prepared to excel in a profession where the scope of practice is expanding and there are greater responsibilities for delivery of more complex interventions in a range of healthcare settings and across diverse populations. Our course recognises the increased demand for graduates who understand the importance of person-centred care and have the capacity to engage people as informed partners in their health care.

Positives: The course was fairly relaxed - the content in first year was very basic and allowed students to refresh their knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology and build on this.

The placements we're structured in a way that introduced different skills slowly and allowed students to practice in a monitored lab setting...
