Course Description

UniSA has invested millions of dollars in on-campus clinics and facilities. The Horizon Hospital and Health Service (HHHS) is a clinician-led, authentic simulated hospital and health service, at our City East, Mt Gambier and Whyalla campuses. As a nursing student, you can participate in clinical learning and practise within the HHHS throughout your degree, in addition to off-campus clinical placements.

The HHHS is a fully equipped, state-of-the-art clinical learning environment populated by residents of our Horizon City and Community, a virtual health community which is unique to UniSA. It is designed to facilitate, enhance and support your understanding of real-world nursing practice. Residents of Horizon include interactive manikins each with their own persona, as well as real people acting as residents, who have their own personal stories, relationships and health histories.

As part of your studies, you will regularly engage and interact with Horizon residents, both within the virtual environment and in HHHS to develop and practise your nursing knowledge and skills.

State-of-the-art facilities together with teaching staff who are well above world-class researchers in Nursing1 means you are assured the very best in academic resources, learning facilities and support.

This degree is also a great option for those wanting the flexibility that comes with online learning and workshops on campus – we offer accessible online learning facilities and dedicated support staff who are with you every step of the way.
