The College of Nursing and Midwifery is a centre for excellence in nursing and midwifery education from vocational through to postgraduate. Our courses can help you begin your nursing or midwifery career or, as a registered nurse, allow you to build your nursing expertise.


As a dual sector university, we offer various nursing pathways to begin and continue your nursing career – a career where you can make a real difference. Through our vocational education area, you can begin studying at the Diploma level and exit as an enrolled nurse. Our Bachelor of Nursing is an avenue to become a registered nurse. With its distance and face-to-face study options, we offer opportunities to study towards a career that would not normally be available to people who need to juggle multiple roles or who live in remote and rural communities. You may undertake this at a full-time pace over three years or up to seven years through part-time study.

We also provide a pathway for domestic registered nurses who have been out of nursing for more than five years to re-enter the workforce. Our Graduate Certificate in Re-entry program is six months full-time or one year part-time. 

Our post graduate nursing courses allow you to enhance your career by developing your expertise in specialty areas such as correctional nursing, mental health nursing and clinical nursing. 


Registered nurses interested in becoming midwives can enrol in our fast tracked 1.5-year Bachelor of Midwifery (Graduate Entry) program.  This course includes residential schools and industry placements to ensure your skills are developed for the current workplace.   

The College of Nursing and Midwifery is passionate about preparing a healthcare workforce that can adapt to future health challenges by enabling students to realise their dreams and excel in their chosen career.
