What you will study
The program requires completion of 80 units and consists of prescribed nursing and elective courses. The program has a clinical practice focus and allows for specialisation in selected areas of nursing. Streams and areas of specialisation are available in acute care (including perioperative, nephrology, intensive care, emergency and surgical nursing – please note that this specialisation is not currently available to international students), older person nursing, mental health nursing; and child, youth and family nursing. You must complete the courses approved for each specialisation to ensure specialisation acknowledgement.
A number of the courses listed are offered in partnership with Hunter New England Area Health (including mental health and the Centre for Education and Nursing Research in Child Health [CENRiCH]).
Teaching is shared between academic staff and conjoint staff who are clinical experts within their speciality areas.
