The Bachelor of Nursing aims to produce dynamic graduate nurses who will be leaders in healthcare in the 21st century. The course prepares nurses with the requisite knowledge and skills to be effective and perceptive communicators, graduating from the course with the capabilities and attributes to have a positive impact on the future of the nursing profession and the quality of peoples' lives. As a Bachelor of Nursing graduate, you will be recognised for your excellent and innovative practice as you identify and effect change in health care. This care will reflect contemporary knowledge, practice, research and technology.
Very high achieving students can apply to be admitted to the Bachelor of Nursing scholars program. Nursing scholars complete the same academic program as other students but also have access to a range of development opportunities including expert mentoring, special activities and seminars. These benefits are your reward for your effort and academic performance - and they are sure to support and enhance your experience in this degree.
The Bachelor of Nursing course will prepare you for increasingly complex health care situations in Australia and internationally. As a graduate you will have acquired the knowledge and skills to be a competent beginning-level professional registered nurse with leadership capability in a range of health care contexts including acute care, primary health care and health promotion.
You will develop knowledge for the safe practice of clinical skills in a variety of health care facilities and services over the course of your studies, and develop a broad range of knowledge in relevant disciplines, enabling you to critically analyse health care situations, concepts and perspectives. You will have plenty of opportunity for clinical experience in diverse settings throughout Victoria and you may also get the opportunity to study and undertake clinical placements in Sweden or the UK under our successful student exchange programs.
Your clinical and professional skills will be further developed through time spent working with students enrolled in other health science disciplines (i.e. occupational therapy, physiotherapy, emergency health, medical imaging, nutrition science, social work) enabling you to experience interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.
Successful completion of the course will lead to eligibility for registration as a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. The nursing degree creates local, national and international opportunities in a range of health service areas, such as acute hospital care, mental health, rehabilitation, aged care, community-based care and rural and remote services.
It also provides an excellent foundation for further education and practice in specialist areas of acute medical/surgical nursing, emergency nursing, intensive care, midwifery, paediatrics, peri-operative, mental health, palliative care, oncology, wound care and other areas.
