Provide high-quality care and change lives. The Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) develops a comprehensive understanding of professional nursing practice.
Combining practical learning with extensive clinical placements, this degree will enable you to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and launch your career in healthcare.
As a nursing student, you will learn from leading experts about human biology, physiology and pharmacology as well as the differing areas of nursing including ageing, child and adolescent care, and mental health. Teaching takes place throughout lectures, tutorials, simulation clinics and through wide-ranging clinical placements.
During this three year degree, your units are structured into four broad areas that are interwoven into your learning experiences throughout the course: underpinnings of nursing practice; health, development and assessment; contexts of practice; and nursing and practice. The advanced studies element of our course underpins all of these areas of study and focuses on cultivating leadership, using research to make evidence-based decisions, and enhancing your understanding of the international health landscape. Alongside your classroom studies, you will gain invaluable practical experience through 880 hours of clinical placements across a wide variety of healthcare settings including emergency departments, intensive care units, paediatric units, mental health facilities and community health centres.
With a wide and growing field of practice across the public and private healthcare systems, this degree will prepare you to thrive in both local and global health environments as you work with other health professionals to provide high quality patient-centred care.
