We’ve designed our Bachelor of Nursing to prepare you for the diversity and complexities of 21st century nursing.

At Swinburne, you'll benefit from our strengths in technology and innovation. Your clinical skills will be developed safely using simulation technology and realistic case studies.

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.

All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity, which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. This degree includes a mandatory work placement as a professional accreditation requirement. You’ll complete 800 clinical practicum hours in a variety of clinical settings. In Nursing Projects (NUR30007), you'll also have the opportunity to explore a student led project in collaboration with local and international industry partners.

You’ll 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.

Due to high interest and limited capacity, students will be unable to defer their place in this course.
