BACHELOR OF NURSING /

BACHELOR OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION


The Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business
Administration will prepare graduates to
meet the evolving business management
expectations of our health services. The
health industry is changing at a great pace
and the role of the registered nurse with it.
Registered nurses are increasingly moving from
bedside practice into middle management
roles early in their careers and are expected
to take leadership roles in multi-disciplinary
teams. In the wide range of practice settings
from hospitals to aged care, general practice,
private practice and the community, health is
increasingly seen as a business, and nurses are
required to contribute to the success of that
business through effective management of
staff and financial resources.

CAREER OPTIONS
Graduates will find careers in government,
public and/or private hospitals, management,
education and research, health promotion,
and a wide range of occupations that require
an understanding of business processes.
Duration: 4.5 years FT (or equivalent PT)
