Undertaking Honours in nursing gives you the opportunity to complete a two year part-time program (available to local students) or a year-long program (available to both local and international students). The program combines coursework and research in an area of nursing practice relevant to your clinical interests, the nursing discipline and our nursing research program. The program will provide opportunity to further advance your nursing knowledge and skills; entry into higher degree program; and expand employment opportunities including a career in nursing research and project management. The advanced analytical, research and communication skills you will gain as a rseult of completing honours are highly sought after by employers. Students undertaking an approved graduate year program, while enrolled in the honours course, may apply for credit for the nursing elective. To receive the credit, students need to have completed a minimum of 52 days of clinical practice and provide a satisfactory report of their clinical progress from the graduate year program coordinator. Students who have maintained a weighted average mark of 75% or above, in the final two years of a Bachelor of Nursing course, are eligible to apply for admission. Students offered admission at the regional campuses will enrol in the Bendigo course (HHNUSB). The course requires the completion of 120 credit points over one year of full-time or equivalent part-time study.
