Course Description

Completed in three years of full-time study our Bachelor of Nursing places a strong focus on the nurse-patient relationship and is highly practical. You will undertake 1,120 hours of practical nursing experience during the program – more than any other nursing program in Western Australia. The program will give you the skills and confidence to work in a variety of healthcare settings when you graduate. The program is accredited by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council.

Providing high-quality, compassionate and respectful care is the benchmark for any world-class healthcare system and this Bachelor of Nursing program is designed to do just that. Taken over three years this well-balanced program offers a perfect combination of classroom learning and hands-on experience in appropriate healthcare settings.

The program is divided into four broad study streams: Behavioural Science, Health Science, Nursing Care: Theory and Practice, and Personal and Professional Development. This degree uses problem- solving and an evidence-based approach to teaching - integrating theoretical and practical components. Subjects covered include anatomy, physiology, microbiology, pharmacology, ethics, health communications, paediatrics and adolescent health. Students also choose two electives – options include Rural and Remote Health, Global Health, Maternal Care, Advanced Mental Health and Advanced Wound Care.
