8 Core subjects
  • Becoming a Nurse | BAN101
    This subject introduces the practice of nursing underpinned by the philosophy of nursing and developing a professional identity. Nursing skills and knowledge are essential in caring for the person and are framed within a decision making framework. Students will work with the person to manage self-care needs, clinical measurements, infection control, and workplace safety to enable assessment of the person’s health status and promote optimal health and wellbeing. They will develop an understanding of the differing roles and responsibilities in the healthcare environment including the healthcare team, the referral system and appropriate industry terminology.

    A beginning knowledge of law and ethics will ensure the nursing student works within their scope of practice in their first professional practice experience which integrates theory and practice as a component of this subject. Laboratory skills practice equips students with the basic fundamental skills of becoming a nurse.

  • Structure and Function of the Human Body | SHB102
    This subject introduces the basic concepts and terminologies required to study and understand the structure and function of the human body. The interaction and organisation of cells, tissues and organs will form a basis to study the physiological integration of key body systems. The maintenance and regulation of the internal environment by homeostasis at a system level and by hormonal and neural influence will be key to students understanding disruption and disease in later subjects. This subject will provide evidence based foundational knowledge in the biological sciences to guide nursing practice.
  • Self-care Practices | SCP103
    The focus of this subject is on the self-care of the student nurse. This subject introduces the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable the development of personal and professional resilience, as well as personal health and well-being. Fundamental to wellbeing, is interpersonal communication, effective relationship building and trust (including an introduction to cultural safety). Students will review the physiology of and potential impacts of stress, examining a multi-faceted approach to maintain personal safety and well-being.
  • Sociology of Health and Illness | SHI104
    This subject provides an overview of the sociology of health and illness and enables students to explore the relationship between public health and the social determinants of health and health outcomes, especially for vulnerable populations, using relevant epidemiological data and public health literature. Knowledge and skills will be expanded to translate public and population health level information into meaningful and relevant health promotion and education activities.
  • Care of Persons with Chronic Conditions | CPC105
    This subject provides students with the skills and knowledge required to contribute to the care of the person with a chronic illness and their family/carer by assisting with nursing interventions that support the person's needs and assist in maintaining an optimal lifestyle. The focus will be on common diseases and those with the greatest burden of diseases as these are long lasting and have persistent effects. An emphasis of this subject will be on the education and promotion of community based health promotion, disease prevention and self-care.

    This subject includes 80 hours of clinical placement.

  • Human Biology and Disease | HBD106
    This subject will further develop student’s knowledge on medical terminologies relating to structure and function whilst introducing basic pathological processes operating in the body in response to injurious stimuli. The disruption of homeostasis and causal mechanisms of disease such as inflammation, infection, trauma and growth abnormalities will be explored. Basic principles of microbiology will be important for infection control practices. Students will be introduced to the pathophysiology and symptomatology of some common disease states. Disorders related to the ageing process and degeneration will be considered, as will the impact of environmental influences such as nutrition and lifestyle, especially in the context of community and public health.

    This subject builds on the knowledge and skills from the structure and function of the human body and provides the foundation to look at disease, disorders and syndromes and their pathophysiology, clinical presentation, common aetiologies and pharmacological treatment, from a person centred approach in later subjects.

  • Evidence-based Practice | EBP107
    Evidence-based practice is an essential component of the exercise of clinical judgement in the delivery of quality healthcare. Students will also gain an understanding of how research evidence is translated into practice. This subject provides students with an introduction to health informatics, research and digital literacy, critical thinking and evidence-based practice. Students are guided through the skills necessary to locate, critique and interpret a research article for application to their practice. They will become familiar with quantitative and qualitative evidence, research methodology, basic descriptive and inferential statistics and the foundational skills to be able to evaluate and appraise evidence in healthcare research.
  • Health Assessment | HAS108
    This subject will assist the student to develop health assessment skills including observation, therapeutic communication, physical examination techniques, psychosocial/cultural assessment and diagnostic tests that inform clinical judgement. Students will develop and practice skills in effective communication, consent, respecting persons’ privacy, work health and safety concerns. The application of clinical reasoning will enable identification of person problems that then inform person management.

    This subject aligns with other nursing practice subjects.

    This subject includes 40 hours of clinical placement.

So, students with a recent secondary school education are now considered for admission if they have a Year 12 (Australian secondary school) certificate.
  • Am I a domestic or an international student?
