Why choose this course?
QUT was the first provider of tertiary nurse education in Queensland. Our course content reflects emerging developments in healthcare and nursing practice that have been identified through consultation with industry partners, discipline experts and research literature.
Our School of Nursing is one of the largest and most established centres in Australia, with more than 40 years of industry consultation and experience. You will learn from some of Australia’s most respected and influential nurse academics and researchers.
Foundation studies will build your knowledge in key areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and will introduce you to professional nursing practice and contemporary healthcare service.
You will also develop an understanding of pharmacology with an emphasis on quality use of medicines. These studies are complemented with opportunities to apply nursing theory to clinical practice in our on campus facilities and in clinical placements off campus.
Graduates of this degree are prepared to excel in a profession where the scope of practice is expanding and there are greater responsibilities for delivery of more complex interventions in a range of healthcare settings and across diverse populations.
Our course recognises the increased demand for graduates who understand the importance of person-centred care and have the capacity to engage people as informed partners in their health care.
With purpose-built, on-campus facilities that replicate the hospital environment, technology, equipment and scenarios, you will develop confidence and skills to work in a range of nursing environments.
Our Clinical Simulation Centre contains operational hospital rooms where you will practise with real equipment and the latest technology in a simulated environment.
Your experience in real industry settings begins during second semester of your first year and continues with clinical placement experience every semester thereafter.
You will complete 840 hours of placement, with extensive support that includes continual feedback on your performance from clinical facilitators, and mentoring relationships with registered nurse mentors. You may also have the opportunity to apply to travel overseas and provide health services to communities in developed and developing countries.
