Bachelor of Nursing (Fast Track Rozelle) (H3R)

The Bachelor of Nursing (H3R) is a contemporary and innovative course which will prepare you for work in a changing health care environment. With this highly regarded degree you will learn to become part of a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals. The Bachelor of Nursing (H3R) is a fast-tracked degree, meaning you will complete the full six semesters of study, including placements, over a two year period.

You will study on our Rozelle campus, where you will be supported by a well-equipped simulated learning environment. During the course you'll also be given the opportunity to undertake work placements in both rural and metropolitan healthcare facilities. You will develop the knowledge and skills – and perhaps most importantly, the attitude – needed to offer the highest quality health care. You will learn the best practices for the provision of patient-centred care, safety and quality in practice, and research and evidence based practice in nursing.

The two year fast-track Bachelor of Nursing course is offered through the Rozelle campus in partnership with the Sydney Local Health District, South Western Sydney Local Health District, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District.

As an accredited course, once you graduate from this program you will have the knowledge and practical skills to register as a nurse in Australia with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Professional Experience Placement Requirements

SAFETY IN PRACTICE COMPLIANCE

All students enrolling in Faculty of Health programs which include a professional experience placement component, laboratory and/or field activity are required to establish and maintain their capacity to practice safely via Safety in Practice Requirements compliance documentation.

The Faculty, in accordance with Safety in Practice Compliance and Risk Assessment Procedure, assesses student compliance with Safety in Practice Requirements, which include:

  • national criminal history;
  • working with children registration;
  • medical, physical and psychological capacity to safely undertake the Faculty of Health Mandatory Functional Requirements; and
  • infectious disease and immunisation status.

National criminal history and medical, physical and psychological disclosures can inhibit student eligibility to participate in courses. Students must submit the Safety in Practice Requirements compliance documentation to enable risk assessment to be completed before:

The exceptions are the Working with Children Registration and Immunisation Record Card check, which must be completed 4 weeks prior to first PEP.
