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.
Foundation studies build your knowledge in key areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and will introduce you to professional nursing practice and contemporary healthcare services. You will also develop an understanding of pharmacology with an emphasis on the 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 the delivery of more complex interventions in a range of healthcare settings and across diverse populations. Our course recognizes 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.
Applicants who have completed a Diploma of Nursing (enrolled nurse) within 10 years of admission to the Bachelor of Nursing will be awarded one year of advanced standing. This allows you to complete the course in two years instead of three. If you complete your Diploma prior to receiving a QTAC offer, QUT will automatically grant you this advanced standing. If you complete your Diploma after gaining admission to QUT, you will need to lodge an Advanced Standing application.
