What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Nursing degree trains you to become a registered nurse in 3 years. Through our accredited nursing course, you’ll gain the knowledge, clinical skills and placement experience to provide high-quality nursing care and make a difference to your patients.

Monash Nursing graduates are sought after worldwide due to the quality of evidence-based teaching and clinical practice experience they receive. The Bachelor of Nursing provides students with the knowledge and clinical skills to provide high-quality nursing care.

You will also have the scope to provide care in multiple settings, including acute care, primary health care, mental health and health promotion. Monash Nursing will prepare you for increasingly complex health care situations in Australia and internationally.

You will gain invaluable skills in clinical decision-making, client care, communication, cultural competence and research, developed through extensive clinical experience in a variety of settings.

This is underpinned and strengthened by Monash University’s links to world-class medical researchers and major teaching hospitals.

Throughout the course you will connect theory to clinical practice, with plenty of opportunities for clinical experience in diverse settings throughout Victoria. You may also take up the opportunity to study and undertake clinical placements in Sweden or the UK, through our successful student exchange programs.

Your clinical and professional skills will be reinforced through time spent working with excellent mentors and students enrolled in other health science courses (occupational therapy, physiotherapy, paramedic practice, medical imaging, nutrition and dietetics, social work), enabling you to develop the important capacity for interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.

Very high achieving students can apply for access to our Scholars Program, which provides a range of extracurricular opportunities to engage with research staff and the advanced technical facilities used for research.

Successful completion of the course will lead to eligibility for registration as a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) subject to the graduate also meeting the current NMBA Registration standard: English language skills. Registration with the NMBA is a legal requirement for practising as a registered nurse in Australia.
