This double degree will allow you to graduate with two qualifications. Not only will you gain the skills and knowledge needed to become a registered nurse but you will also gain the ability to work as a paramedic.
The Bachelor of Nursing is known for producing adaptable, safe and ethical nurses – in fact, more nurses graduate from ACU than anywhere else in Australia. We use learner–centred approaches including case studies and situation–based learning to enhance students’ experiences as well as their readiness for the workplace.
The Bachelor of Paramedicine will teach you how to analyse situations and react appropriately, whether it’s a cardiovascular emergency or dealing with someone in trauma.
As a graduate, you will be qualified to work in a wide range of careers, such as a:
- aged care nursing
- community nursing
- medical dispatcher
- medical/surgical nursing
With further study, qualified paramedics can become intensive–care paramedics (ICPs), team leaders or special operations team (SOT) rescue paramedics.
Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Paramedicine students will also gain valuable practical experience in a range of health care environments.
You may also take up the opportunity to engage with communities overseas and gain unique educational and cultural experiences working in care facilities in developing countries.
