Welcome to Nursing & Midwifery
Nursing & Midwifery is a large multi-campus program within the School of Health Sciences. The main campus is at Newnham in Launceston, Tasmania and there are three satellite campuses situated in Rozelle and Darlinghurst (NSW) and Hobart in Tasmania. We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate nursing education.
The undergraduate program, the Bachelor of Nursing (BN), is undertaken either over two or three calendar years with each of these options being equivalent, comprising six semesters of study. We are proud to offer the BN in partnership with a number of Health Care Agencies both in Tasmania and in NSW. In Tasmania, the BN is offered in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services and a number of private Health Care Agencies, student professional experience placements being available throughout Tasmania. In NSW at the Darlinghurst Campus it is offered in partnership with the St Vincents & Mater Health Service and at the Rozelle Campus with Sydney Local Health District (LHD), South Western Sydney LHD and South Eastern Sydney LHD. For Sydney based students, professional experience placements are available in these and a number of other LHDs in NSW.
The postgraduate program is designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses and midwives by offering an accessible, diverse and innovative range of professional nursing and midwifery specialisations. The majority of units are delivered flexibly. While the postgraduate program
is growing rapidly, our staff are committed to maintaining a personal and supportive relationship with their students. Postgraduate students reside and work in States and Territories throughout Australia.
Nursing and Midwifery is also research-active, maintaining an extensive research program in collaboration with clinical partners, other programs in the Faculty and other University partners. Current research strengths include: healthy ageing in the community; aged and dementia care; eHealth; and practice development.
