Hear about Sydney Nursing School’s new Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) program and our unique combined degree nursing programs – a Bachelor of Arts, Health Sciences or Science with a Master of Nursing. There are so many choices. Each program equips you with all the practical experience and academic knowledge you’ll need to embrace the many career opportunities in nursing and to make a difference to people’s lives.

If you’re a man who cares about people then you could make a great registered nurse. Men comprise nearly 10% of registered nurses in Australia and at Sydney Nursing School 16% of our students are male. We encourage all our students, both men and women, to reach their full potential. So, if you’re a man and thinking about a caring profession then this mini-lecture is for you! Meet our male academic staff and students and discover rewarding nursing opportunities in health care settings.
Lecture time: 23pm
Our nursing students learn and practise their clinical skills in Sydney Nursing School’s clinical simulation laboratories which feature a large number of medium and high fidelity manikins, including SimMan and SimBaby. Though it maybe a little bit scary at first, they’re just like a real hospital! The labs are where you’ll learn to practise your skills before you undertake your clinical placements in real health care settings.
