UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor of Nursing

The Bachelor of Nursing is a professionally-accredited degree that qualifies you to register as a Registered Nurse (Division 1) in Australia. It is recognised as an approved program of study by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

Degree Details

At CDU, you can study a Bachelor of Nursing online or on campus, part-time or full-time. You will join a cohort of more than 4,000 nursing students across Australia, enjoy flexible study, and learn from nursing experts.

As a graduate of the Bachelor of Nursing, you will be ready to work as a safe, collaborative, articulate and ethical registered nurse. This course will prepare you to be responsive to local, national and regional healthcare needs, and aware of emerging global healthcare trends.

Admission requirements are met by one of the following:

  • Successful completion of the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (or equivalent) and the awarding of an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of at least 70*.
  • Successful completion of a national qualification at Diploma level or higher.
  • Successful completion of at least 0.5 year of full-time study (or equivalent) of a higher education degree with a GPA of 5.5 and above.
  • Overseas secondary or tertiary qualifications considered equivalent to the above Australian qualifications.
  • Attainment of a STAT Multiple Choice score of 180.
  • Successful completion of the Tertiary Enabling Program, the Preparation for Tertiary Success courses, or other recognised tertiary preparation course.
  • Defence members with service of 1 year or more at the following ranks (or higher) meet the academic entry requirement for this course:
    ~Air Force: Aircraftman/Aircraftwoman, Corporal, Leading Aircraftman/Aircraftwoman
    ~Army: Corporal, Lance Corporal, Private
    ~Navy: Able Seaman, Leading Seaman, Seaman

We recommend you apply for a credit transfer if you've previously completed your study. This can be from a course you've completed at CDU or another institution.

You need to have completed your course within the last 7 years, and it should be relevant to the new course you're studying.

If it's been longer than 7 years since you completed your course, we suggest you apply for a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) instead.

Credit will appear on your Academic Record as either a unit (if the unit you completed directly matches the learning outcomes of a CDU unit) or as several credit points at a certain level. This is called unspecified credit and can be used in place of any general electives in your study plan.

A candidate must successfully complete units totalling 240 credit points (cp) as detailed below. All units are valued at 10 credit points unless indicated.
