Faculty of Health



Are you practical, caring, and able to keep a cool head in a crisis? Then nursing may be for you.

The University of Tasmania offers exceptional training in the classroom and through work placements. Our graduates go on to work as nurses and midwives in a range of areas including chronic disease management, mental health, workplace safety, rural and Indigenous health and emergency medicine.

If you're keen to travel you'll find that nursing skills are immensely transferrable once you're registered to practice in other countries.
