UQ’s innovative Bachelor of Nursing program was developed in consultation with patients, students, professional associations and industry partners. It adopts a narrative and inquiry-based approach to learning, integrating clinical placements in major teaching hospitals and community and other healthcare settings.
You'll be hands-on right from the start, and undertake up to 880 hours of supervised clinical placements in a range of clinical settings, including hospitals, critical care, emergency medicine, paediatrics, aged care, rural and mental health.
In your final year, our dedicated placement team will arrange your clinical placement, where you'll apply your theoretical knowledge to practise and develop clinical skills in real-life settings. You may have the opportunity to undertake a placement outside the Brisbane metropolitan area or overseas, subject to funding.
