For many, a career in nursing comes later in life.
For those who are looking for a career change, CDU’s Master of Nursing Practice (pre-registration) is the perfect course.
Available to anyone who has already completed a Bachelor degree in another field, the course enables graduates to become a Registered Nurse and work in all healthcare settings within the Australian healthcare system.
CDU UG Nursing Academic Lead Nicole Norman says those who complete the course will leave with excellent career prospects.
“Working as registered nurse in acute care, primary health care, aged care, mental health, research, the list is endless,” she says.
The Master of Nursing Practice (Pre-Registration) is a professionally accredited course that meets the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) qualification criterion for registration as a Division 1 nurse in Australia.
Course content promotes critical thinking, sound clinical reasoning, comprehensive health assessment skills and patient centred care that is evidence-based and respectful of the diverse contexts, cultures and communities where people live, connect and experience health, well-being, illness and disability.
You will complete supervised clinical placements (800 hours minimum) across the two years of the course in a variety of health care settings. Regardless of your study mode or pattern, you are required to complete clinical placement on a full time, rotating shift basis across a seven-day week roster, including night shifts, weekends and public holidays.
Under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, CDU is required to register nursing students with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and to notify AHPRA if a student has or develops a health impairment that may place the public at substantial risk of harm.
