Applicants are ranked by merit and offers for available places are issued according to the ranking.
In addition, it is required that applicants have the ability to undertake clinical placements and the School's Clinical Policy contains further details of the requirements. Applicants should also view the Inherent Requirements for coursework award courses in Nursing.
Please note this course is not available to applicants who are already registered to practise as a nurse in Australia.
