Facilities and clinics
Your nursing, midwifery and paramedicine studies will have a practical component. You’ll train in simulation facilities like simulated wards and fully-fitted ambulances, complete with realistic ‘patients’. These innovative spaces are as close as you can get to real-world hospital environments, so you’ll get plenty of experience even before your placements with real patients.
Study health overseas
During your course, you’ll have the opportunity to experience nursing and midwifery overseas. Our short-term international study programs can take you to Timor Leste, Vanuatu, the USA, Singapore, Chile and many more destinations, where you’ll study at a partner university or put your skills into practice at local health clinics. Plus, you can choose to study at our Rome Campus.
Our health courses are known for developing health professionals who are compassionate, competent and have a social conscience. Once you’ve graduated you can apply for registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and our paramedic graduates are eligible for membership with Paramedics Australasia. Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor Paramedicine graduates are also accredited by the Council of Ambulance Authorities, giving you a competitive advantage over other graduates with state ambulance services.
Go beyond the classroom with hands-on work experience. Our nurses and midwives will gain 800 hours of clinical practice by the time they graduate, working in placements with our industry partners such as aged care and mental health facilities, and leading hospitals. Midwifery students will also have the opportunity to engage with at least 10 women to follow their pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal-care journey. Our paramedicine students will undertake a minimum of 360 hours of clinical practice within and emergency or simulated emergency setting.
