Become a leader in healthcare and nursing. The combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Nursing program cultivates the critical thinking skills and breadth of the sciences alongside the expertise and experience to become a registered nurse. It provides a wide range of career opportunities across both clinical and non-clinical settings.
As a science and nursing student, you will learn from our leading academics from across the sciences and healthcare disciplines. The Bachelor of Science emphasises fundamental principles and discovery research underpinned by critical analytical capabilities. You can major in one of many areas of science, with elective units allowing you the flexibility to explore different branches and interests. We offer more than 40 study areas, taking you from the nanoscale to the cosmic, from biological to physical and chemical processes as well as preventing diseases in humans, animals and plants.
Leveraging the skills and knowledge of your science degree, the Master of Nursing combines hands-on learning with more than 800 hours of clinical placements to develop a comprehensive understanding of professional nursing practice. You will gain an understanding of the impact of nursing practice within local and global health contexts, and across changing healthcare systems. Upon graduation you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
You can complete this combined degree program in four years of full-time study, after which you will graduate with two qualifications. With a diverse range of experience and expertise, you will be highly employable in both clinical and non-clinical settings.
