Our Clinical Simulation Centre offers a unique learning environment. Use simulation equipment, like the $100,000 'SimMan 3G', to practise your skills. Nursing students are recorded while they work on the patient and can later watch the footage and analyse and assess their performance.
After graduating in 2013, Chris Wright accepted a nursing position at a major Sydney hospital. ‘There is no telling what sort of patients I will be looking after when I come through the doors to work. Some days they challenge me, some days it’s hard to walk out the door when my shift is over. I work with an inspiring group of colleagues caring for people in some of their most difficult times.’
Led by the Head of QUT’s School of Nursing, Professor Patsy Yates, a team of researchers at QUT have been granted $2.5 million by the National Health and Medical Research Council to establish the Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) for End-of-Life Care. The CRE is developing new ways to minimise distress of chronic conditions. The CRE is a collaboration with Flinders University, University of Wollongong and the University of Queensland.
Note: Admission to course is based on prior study entry requirements in addition to a rank. Please refer to Entry Requirements.
You can defer your offer and postpone the start of your course for one year.
Subject to university approval, a redesigned nursing program will be offered from February 2017. These changes are in direct response to emerging developments in healthcare and nursing practice that have been identified through consultation with industry partners, discipline experts, and research literature.
The Bachelor of Nursing (Graduate Entry) provides a pathway for applicants with any bachelor degree to enter the profession.
With more than 35 years of experience, QUT’s School of Nursing is one of the most established centres in Australia. Our nursing graduates are capable of delivering safe and competent practice across health care. They demonstrate nursing care that is patient-centred, evidence based, and respectful. Nursing is one of the most diverse health professions and provides employment opportunities in Australia and overseas. Employment can be in general and specialist areas such as acute care or paediatrics to mental health or intensive care, and in health services beyond the traditional hospital ward.
QUT’s nursing program prepares graduates who will excel in a profession where the scope of practice is expanding and there are greater responsibilities for delivery of more complex interventions in a range of healthcare settings and across diverse populations. Our course recognises 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.
Foundation studies build your knowledge in key areas of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, and will introduce you to professional nursing practice and contemporary healthcare service. You will also develop an understanding of pharmacology with an emphasis on 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.
Our campuses offer operational hospital rooms where you will practise with real equipment and the latest technology in a simulated environment. Your experience in real industry settings begins with an observation activity during first semester of first year and continues with clinical placement experience every semester thereafter. Our strong collaborations with industry mean you may have access to placements in areas of nursing practice that are of specific interest – in operating theatres or emergency nursing, for example.
You will complete more than 800 hours of placement, with extensive support that includes continual feedback on your performance from clinical facilitators, and mentoring relationships with registered nurse mentors. You will also have the opportunity to apply to travel overseas and provide health services to communities in developed and developing countries.
QUT nursing graduates are employed in diverse settings including hospitals and nursing homes, as well as service areas such as community health, hospital in the home, school health, pathology laboratories, alcohol and drug services, and the Australian Defence Force.
Many nurses complete further study and become specialists in acute care nursing, cancer nursing, emergency nursing, intensive care nursing, or paediatric, child and youth health nursing, plus many others.
We are currently seeking approval for accreditation of the redesigned course by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council. Subject to this approval, students and graduates may apply for membership of the Australian College of Nursing.
QUT automatically registers students enrolled in this course with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia in accordance with the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009.
