Study Fast Track Nursing
Nurses make up the largest health professional group in the world, and a nursing career offers varied opportunities in many healthcare settings and areas such as acute care, addiction, child and family health, community, emergency, mental health, midwifery, oncology – just to name a few.
We offer a two-year fast-track Nursing degree from our campuses in Rozelle and Darlinghurst. As a student, you will work with experienced industry partners including hospitals, local health districts and aged care facilities in Sydney, giving you the hands-on practice that employers value and actively look for in graduates.
On graduation, you will be eligible to apply for registration as a nurse, and ready to begin an exciting career.
Study Paramedic Practice
Paramedics provide care to patients in the community and out of hospital settings. This field demands both highly developed clinical skills and the ability to think critically, even in stressful situations.
We offer a two-year fast-track degree from our Rozelle campus, preparing students with opportunities to learn in simulated environments and in the real world. Students practice in the University's ambulance simulation vehicles and at various ambulance stations and other specialist health facilities, like hospitals and aged care.
Paramedics are required to treat patients across the spectrum of illness, from motor vehicle accidents and other severe trauma, to complex medical and mental health cases. They work closely with their colleagues, often in situations that are both physically and emotionally challenging.
If you are compassionate, committed and want to make a difference in your community then a career in Paramedicine may be right for you.
We are opening the doors to our Sydney campuses this August with a series of free hands-on workshops so you can experience what it will be like to study Nursing or Paramedic Practice with us in Sydney. We will also have information sessions and expert advice available so you can learn more about a career in health. Workshops are being held in August, register now at utas.edu.au/sydney-taster.
