Progression from Diploma of Nursing

If you are progressing from the Diploma of Nursing, it is recommended that you are registered as an enrolled nurse with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), the Nursing and Midwifery Board.  Taking this step verifies your prior study so academic credit can be awarded towards your bachelor degree, allowing you to commence in the second year of the course.  If you are not currently registered, please apply now and proceed with your enrolment.

You can either provide certified copies of your AHPRA registration to hsadmin@swinburne.edu.au or come into our HE Nursing offices at the Wantirna campus (WS building) to present your registration documentation in person. You must provide your AHPRA registration by Monday 10 February 2020 to be ready for course commencement.

If you have received credit exemptions and are starting in year 2 of the Bachelor of Nursing in Semester 1 2020, please note that your course commencement date is Monday 10 February. This earlier commencement date is due to a mandatory unit you must study before you complete your placement.

To be eligible for progression into the fourth year (honours year), students must achieve a minimum of a distinction average (70%) in core psychology units at the third year level.

Due to limited places in the honours year, the required average may be increased, however students with an average of at least 75% will be guaranteed a place in the fourth year.

Students in this course who do not meet this standard for entry into fourth year will be eligible for the award of a Bachelor of Psychological Sciences subject to the completion of the requirements of that award.
