You're considered an Australian student if you are any of the following:
The healthcare industry is constantly changing with new technologies and approaches to care to improve the detection, diagnosis and management of chronic and acute illness, as well as having a strong emphasis of keeping populations healthy. Our nursing and midwifery qualifications are evolving with these changes, which means you will be guaranteed an industry-relevant, practical qualification that ensures you graduate career-ready.
There is a strong focus on theory and practical experience, and undergraduate students will do much of their learning in our unique clinician led, authentic hospital and health service on campus. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a fully-equipped emergency department, birthing suite and day surgery. This simulated hospital environment fully led by practicing registered nurses and midwives (clinicians), known as the Horizon Hospital and Health Service (HHHS), is the only one of its kind in South Australia.
You will then have the opportunity to further develop these skills when you embark on real-world clinical placements across metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals and health services under the supervision of practicing nurses and midwives.
