A four-year Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Psychological Science degree has been proposed as a course that would appeal to applicants considering a pathway in general nursing, in psychology careers or in specialised mental health nursing practice. The course presents significant employment opportunities and is hoping to attract students who are looking for distinctive educational, practice and research careers. The degree is structured so that you will undertake the core subjects from the psychological science degree alongside nursing subjects. Students will be associated with The Royal Melbourne Hospital Clinical School. Clinical Schools provide a unique model of teaching that embeds all practical and classroom learning. During the four-year degree you will cover all clinical nursing subjects which will provide you the opportunity to practice nursing care for people of all ages, including those with long term illnesses and mental health conditions or emergency needs. The core psychological science subjects provide a foundational understanding of knowledge in the discipline, including cognitive, developmental, social, abnormal, clinical, and health psychology. Students will also learn to carry out, analyse, and interpret research studies, including a year-long capstone research project, and gain understanding of psychological assessment and intervention techniques.
