About the Course

The combined Bachelor of Arts and Master of Nursing program develops analytical and critical capabilities alongside the skills and expertise you need to become a registered nurse. It opens up a wide range of career opportunities across both clinical and non-clinical settings. The Master of Nursing component of this course requires completion of clinical placements that prepare graduates for professional practice. Students undertake more than 800 hours of clinical placements over their course of study and practise skills in the Sydney Nursing School's clinical laboratories and high fidelity simulation wards. During the final year of the course, students complete a four week clinical placement in an area in which they may choose to specialise in: paediatrics, mental health, high acuity, or clinical nursing. Due to the requirements of professional practice and the integrated structure of the course, exchange units of study in both arts and nursing are not available.
