Registered Nurses play a critical role in the healthcare system and are involved in a range of activities that are designed to provide care for people with acute, chronic and complex health conditions. Registered nurses are integral in the treatment of people, families, communities and populations.

The Bachelor of Nursing will assist you to evaluate concepts drawn from nursing theory and research and apply them to professional practice. You will develop an increased awareness of the cultural, social, economic, legal and ethical influences on the development of nursing knowledge and practice that will help you to become a transformative registered nurse.
