Objectives:
The Bachelor of Nursing is a professionally accredited degree providing eligibility for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of the Northern Territory. As comprehensive Registered Nurses, graduates are able to work in a diversity of fields including, mental health, community health, acute and chronic care. Graduates are educated to apply to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council competencies for a beginning level Registered Nurse. These enable graduates to work in direct practice with individuals, families and communities. The underpinning principles of comprehensive primary health care, namely: cultural safety in practice, in particular to addressing the needs of Indigenous and multi-cultural Australians; recognising the value of using a population health approach for the prevention, early detection and management of chronic diseases; providing appropriate evidence-based care; and the ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams is embedded throughout the Bachelor of Nursing program in both content and assessment. These principles combined with education in the range of core knowledge and specialist technical nursing skills ensure that graduates can retrieve and apply knowledge and information to respond appropriately and ethically to the needs of diverse populations and function professionally as a Registered Nurse in a regional and global context. Units in this course may be offered in either internal or external mode of study. Not all units are offered in both modes. All students must attend and pass a one week Clinical Teaching Block for every year of full time equivalent study at either the Casuarina or Alice Springs campuses of the University. Clinical Teaching Blocks may be held interstate from time to time depending on staff and venue availability and student numbers. Clinical Teaching Blocks held Interstate are only available to students who live in that State or territory. All other students are required to attend Clinical teaching Blocks at either the Casuarina or Alice Springs Campuses of the University. Clinical placements are dependent upon availability at health care sites and may be scheduled outside the University calendar dates for the assigned Semester. Police check: students must have cleared a Police Check before they can undertake practice teaching, clinical placements. Students whose Police Checks are not cleared by the education sectors will not be able to undertake practice teaching, clinical placements and will not therefore be able to complete the requirements of the course.

Two common units provide students with the foundation knowledge and skills necessary to successfully complete the course, prepare them for lifelong learning and promote the concept of cultural safety in practice, in particular to addressing the needs of indigenous and multi-cultural Australians.

Sixteen compulsory core units provide students with essential knowledge that underpins a population health approach for the prevention, early detection and management of acute and chronic diseases and prepare students to be comprehensive Registered Nurses, who are able to apply the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council competencies at a beginning level in a diversity of fields including, mental health, community health, acute and chronic care in direct practice with individuals, families and communities.

The six specialist elective units (five theory and one clinical), aim to provide greater depth of knowledge and allow students to study a generalised or speciality sequence of subjects in which they have a specific interest.

Enrolment Information


A national shortage of undergraduate nursing clinical placements means that the ability of the University to provide the clinical placement component of the course is subject to availability of clinical places in the healthcare sector. As a result, this course has enrolment conditions.

Your enrolment is an agreement to accept these conditions.

1.    You must enrol according to a specified study plan based on your qualifications and experience on entry to the course;
2.    You must undertake the clinical placement component of the program at the time and place designated by the University;
3.    Deviation from the specified study plan is only permitted when this can be facilitated by a clinical placement agreement between the University and an approved health service provider. Requests for approval to deviate from the course study plan should be submitted to ehsoffice@cdu.edu.eu.

To identify the study plan that applies to your enrolment, please see attachments below

Clinical Placement and Clinical Teaching Block Information

Please note clinical placements units are dependant upon availability at healthcare sites and may be scheduled outside the University calendar dates for the assigned Semester

Placements are dependent on the capacity of our partner health service agencies to provide learning experiences within the guidelines set by the nurse registering authority. Students have the opportunity to nominate placement preferences and priority is given to students in healthcare services with whom the University has a practice agreement in place. While the University will endeavour to place students within the Semester in which the student is enrolled in a clinical subject and as close to their residential address as possible this can not be guaranteed.
