It is intended to provide the student with academic parity with other tertiary education health professionals. The intention of the program is to enable graduates to further develop as practitioners, promoters of health and critical thinkers with greater awareness of the role and benefits of research. The Bachelor of Health (Nursing) Post-Registration is open to both registered nurses who hold a Diploma in Nursing from a college or university and to registered nurses who hold a nursing certificate from a hospital-based program within their own country.
