Studying nursing (Honours)
With increasing competition in all sectors of employment, students who graduate with an Honours degree have a distinct advantage. It is often considered by employers as an added skill and has been used by previous graduates to pursue higher positions and salaries. You can develop and carry out research on a topic of interest, potentially leading to further academic study such as a PhD.
The Honours degree is designed to develop your knowledge and skill in research and theory development, and involves a research project in a selected field of nursing. It is intended for registered nurses who wish to prepare themselves for higher degree studies and for leadership in nursing practice, research and education.
Employment opportunities for nurses are excellent. The range of work areas include general nursing, medical/surgical, psychiatric/mental health, developmental disability, community health, rehabilitation, occupational health and safety, paediatrics, accident and emergency, women's health, operating theatres, aged care, palliative care and many others.
