At UTS, we’re leading the way when it comes to nursing education. All our courses emphasise hands-on practice, which means you’ll be applying theoretical knowledge in a range of clinical scenarios — think simulations, case studies and professional placements — from early in your degree.
Learn from the best
UTS is #1 in Australia and seventh in the world in nursing and midwifery*. Our courses are led by dynamic and highly qualified teaching staff, and they’ve all had extensive professional experience in clinical, education, policy or research roles. Their diverse expertise means you’ll be exposed to a wide range of techniques and perspectives, giving you the chance to think about nursing in a range of professional contexts.
Our teaching facilities and clinical practice labs have been built to mimic real-world clinical environments. Test your skills on lifelike mannikins in simulated hospital rooms, study in purpose-built classrooms, or relax in collaborative student study lounges that have been designed with you in mind. These spaces are part of a UTS-wide redevelopment that’s transformed our campus into a student-centric, fit-for-purpose educational environment — so you can take your learning with you everywhere you go.
Your time matters, and our flexible approach to education will help you make the most of it. Our postgraduate courses combine online and intensive face-to-face learning, as well as master classes in our state-of-the-art teaching labs, giving you more control over when and where you study.
Where knowledge begins
All our course content is underpinned by the latest in nursing and midwifery research – and a lot of that research comes straight from UTS. That means your learning will respond to the changing nature of the health care landscape, and it’ll also be embedded with the sort of evidence-based outcomes that are shaping the sector today.
Connections that count
Beyond UTS, our faculty is affiliated with more than 100 clinical facilities across NSW. These professional connections provide clinical placements for students like you, and they’re a great starting point for you to build your professional network.
Ready to lead
With an undergraduate nursing degree, you’ll get a taste of fundamental and specialist nursing roles in a range of health care settings in preparation for registration as a nurse. After graduation, you’ll spend some time in the workforce, building on your skills and experience. How long that takes is up to you – when you’re ready to take on a leadership role, our postgraduate degrees will help you build your leadership potential through a combination of online learning and on-campus study days. You’ll also gain high-level skills in your chosen specialty area, as well as the opportunity to debate and network with peers and industry leaders.
