Pass Degree

The dual degree course Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Arts aims to develop a proactive and adaptable graduate who, at a beginning level, will be an independent life long learner, a competent practitioner, a creative and critical thinker, and a motivated researcher.

The course will facilitate the education of students enabling them to become registered nurses able to practice in a wide range of health care settings. The course will provide the opportunity for students to develop the personal and professional attributes required for practice in a dynamic contemporary health care environment. In addition, the Bachelor of Arts degree offers students the opportunity to enhance further skills of critical analysis, decision making and organisation that are essential in many areas of potential employment.

Graduates will be eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse Division 1 with the Nurses' Board Victoria.

Science Studies

The science studies major is designed to enable students to develop an appreciation of scientific principles and applications. Throughout the sequence students will be encouraged to consider the role of science and technology in society.

Nursing Studies

The nursing studies are professional study units, designed to equip graduates with the specialised knowledge they will need as Registered Nurses. These units explore ideas of health, healthcare and nursing practice within a social and professional environment. Inherent in nursing studies are the values of respect for the human person, valuing of the sacred in life, spirituality, social justice, and service to the community. In addition to the theoretical units, students will undertake six units of supervised clinical practice in which they can apply and develop their theoretical and practical knowledge.

Humanities/Social Science Studies*

Students will be able to choose electives and minors from any of the available Bachelor of Arts offerings.

*Quotas may apply.

Professional Recognition

Upon successful completion of the course, graduates will be eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse Division 1 with the Nurses' Board Victoria.
