The Bachelor of Nursing Honours is designed to extend knowledge gained through your undergraduate nursing education. You will undertake the program in partnership with an experienced nurse academic who will provide mentoring and an introduction to research with a nursing focus of your choice. The course addresses foundation research concepts required for higher level research studies. This encompasses:

  • acquisition of knowledge and skills
  • critical thinking
  • decision making
  • complex problem solving

You will use these skills to produce a registerable and potentially publishable systematic review of the literature on a topic nominated by you.

Career opportunities

Completion of a high quality honours degree can lead directly to entry to Doctor of Philosophy programs or prepare students for career opportunities as a research nurse. An Honours degree extends clinical knowledge in a specific area and can enhance your practice
