Speciality study areas will include high acuity nursing, mental health services, aged and palliative care, rural and Indigenous health care, and family, paediatrics and primary health care. Small class sizes will provide you with individualised support and assessments will be approached with an authentic, real-world view - all to help you develop into a well-rounded professional. You will graduate as a registered nurse (RN) and be ready to pursue a career in a variety of settings, including tertiary hospitals, aged care, rural, remote or community health care.
