Nursing and Rural Health is a progressive regionally based unit providing quality education for students, with a particular focus on rural nursing practice. Academic staff engage with community groups and industry partners to support community health and the local health workforce.
Nursing (pre-registration) degree
The undergraduate nursing degree prepares graduates for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, a requirement for practice as a registered nurse.
Employment outcomes are excellent with graduates gaining positions in rural and metropolitan hospitals and healthcare settings across Australia. Graduates who prefer to work in their local rural community have a high rate of success in gaining employment following registration.
The Bachelor of Nursing program has been designed to prepare nurses to meet contemporary healthcare requirements and respond to Australian and international healthcare trends. As well as studying the practice and theory of nursing and healthcare, students undertake a range of practical learning experiences throughout the program including visiting and being placed within healthcare agencies and within university practice-based laboratories. The program is available at both Whyalla and Mount Gambier.
