Course Description

The Bachelor of Nursing is designed to prepare students for the role of the registered nurse. The course incorporates a range of nursing subjects as well as behavioural science, physical science, ethics and professional subjects relevant to contemporary nursing practice. Graduates of the course are capable of delivering a high standard of confident, safe and therapeutic nursing care in a variety of health care settings. They demonstrate nursing care that is patient-centred, informed and responsible.

Clinical learning is a key element of the course with clinical placements in health care settings occurring in every session. Learning technologies such as simulation, which is undertaken within faculty clinical practice laboratories, assist students in preparing for clinical practice. Across the course students develop an e-portfolio to showcase their abilities and facilitate career planning. In the third year of the course students are able to pursue an area of nursing interest by choosing a clinical specialty elective.
