Courses Overview

What will I learn?
The Bachelor of Nursing is a professionally accredited degree providing eligibility for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. As comprehensive Registered Nurses, graduates are able to work in a diversity of fields including mental health, community health, acute and chronic care. Graduates are encouraged to apply to the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Board as beginning level Registered Nurses. This enables graduates to work in direct practice with individuals, families and communities.
Underpinning the course are principles of comprehensive primary care which are embedded into teaching content and assessment. This includes cultural safety in practice in particular to addressing the needs of indigenous and multicultural Australians; a public health approach for the prevention, early detection and management of chronic diseases; evidence-based care and the ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams. These principles combined with core knowledge and specialist technical nursing skills ensure that graduates can retrieve and apply knowledge to meet the needs of diverse populations and function as professional registered nurses in a regional and global context.
Units in this course may be offered in either internal or external mode of study. Not all units are offered in both modes. All students must attend and pass a one week Simulation Block for every year of full time equivalent study at Casuarina, Alice Springs or Sydney campuses of the University. Students must also complete clinical placement units. Clinical placement units are dependent upon availability of placements with approved health care providers. Whilst the University will endeavour to place students within the semester in which they are enrolled and as close to their semester address as possible, this cannot be guaranteed. It is a requirement of the course that students only attend clinical placements at the time and place approved by Charles Darwin University. Failure to accept an arranged placement will result in delayed progression and completion of this course.
Course Structure
The course consists of 24 units. Two common units provide students with the foundation knowledge and skills necessary to successfully complete the course, prepare them for lifelong learning and promote the concept of cultural safety in practice, in particular to addressing the needs of Indigenous and multi-cultural Australians.
Twenty one (21) compulsory core units provide students with essential knowledge that underpins a population health approach for the prevention, early detection and management of acute and chronic diseases.
The specialist elective unit aims to provide greater depth of knowledge and allow students to study a generalised or specialty sequence of subjects in which they have a specific interest.
Students must provide proof that they have met all CDU and state/territory pre-clinical requirements before they can undertake those units that include clinical placements. These requirements include, but are not limited to, immunisation requirements, criminal record checks and/or working with children clearances and/or fitness to practice requirements. Applicants holding a Bachelor of Nursing but who have let their nursing registration lapse and have not been part of the nursing workforce in the last five years will be required to provide written evidence of prior registration.
A candidate must successfully complete units totalling 240 credit points. All units are valued at 10 credit points unless otherwise indicated.
Professional Recognition
Graduates of this course are eligible to apply for registration with the Health Licensing Authority (Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia).
