    About the course

    Nurses and paramedics are in high demand in the community, especially in rural regions where some towns experience chronic shortages of trained professionals. Although qualified for employment anywhere in Australia, many graduates will be particularly well suited for appointment in rural areas because the clinical and practical sessions of the course will have been undertaken in such settings.

    Graduates will be valued in rural and remote areas because they will be multi-skilled in fields where there are noted shortages.

    Where it will take you

    Graduates find employment with ambulance services and as nurses in a wide range of clinical areas, particularly in intensive care/accident and emergency, and paramedical high dependency areas.

    Some of our graduates have obtained employment with the Army / Navy / Air Force and with overseas organisations.

    Your course is recognised by industry

    The Bachelor of Nursing degree is accredited by the Nurses and Midwives Board of New South Wales (NMB NSW) and the Bachelor of Clinical Practice (Paramedic) is recognised by Australian ambulance services.

    Practical experience

    The course provides opportunities for a variety of placements in Paramedics and Nursing Practice in hospitals and other health care agencies. Placements will be available in both urban and rural settings.
