Course Description

Nurses are highly respected members of the community who make an important and meaningful contribution to society. A career in nursing is well suited to people with high levels of compassion and empathy who desire an exciting, rewarding and flexible profession that supports people and their families and saves lives.

The Bachelor of Nursing is designed to produce registered nurses with a high level of hands-on practical experience in both simulation and in the real world. The degree also offers students the chance to explore contemporary issues in the areas of health promotion, maintenance, advocacy and care.

Adelaide Nursing School has a relatively small student intake each year, meaning that students will form strong relationships with their fellow students and have the opportunity to interact closely with teaching staff. Throughout the three years of the degree, students undertake compulsory placements in clinical and non-clinical settings across city and rural locations to gain the skills, attitudes and knowledge that will underpin their future careers.

This degree provides a professional qualification as a registered nurse and is recognised Australia-wide.

The best part of this course is the great hands on experience involved.

Stay motivated because the book work can be quite boring and not interesting.

My advice to future students is: Keep on top of your work and go to every lecture.
