Course info


Our Bachelor of Nursing is underpinned by a belief that in today’s constantly changing healthcare environment, people, their whanau, and their community’s complex and diverse health needs require nurses who are well-educated, research-informed, and adept in critical thinking.

We believe the best way to develop and train nurses is through a balance of thinking and doing, so you’ll get to apply your learning in a range of health-related areas, and on placements at a variety of hospitals and health centres across the Auckland region. This is to ensure you graduate confident and work-ready.

Our Bachelor of Nursing is the only programme in West Auckland which prepares you for registration as a nurse and is approved by the Nursing Council of New Zealand.

Bachelor of Nursing highlights

  • Learn from an experienced and multi-cultural team, many of whom still work in clinical nursing practice, and whose value of partnership and care is reflected in quality teaching, support, and innovative curriculum delivery.
  • We’re proud to attract a diverse student population which reflects our local population.
  • Practice what you’ve learnt in a range of health-related areas, at a variety of hospitals and health centres across the Auckland region. Placement experiences range in disciplines (from acute care, surgery and medicine to rehabilitation/disability, preventative care, mental health and primary care). Locations include but are not limited to WDHB, the Mason Clinic, and primary health care organisations.
  • Access to the Waitakere Hospital Awhina Simulation Centre.
  • Over the three years of your degree, you’ll complete a minimum of 1100 hours of practice placements and approximately 100 hours in the Awhina Simulation lab at Waitakere Hospital. In your final year, you’ll work rostered nursing duties as you transition into professional nursing practice.
