1 Faculty of Health Disciplines of Nursing & Midwifery Frequently Asked Questions Bachelor of Nursing What is the difference between a Nursing degree and Midwifery degree? Which should I do first? Nursing and Midwifery are distinct disciplines. Both disciplines offer 3 year accredited undergraduate degrees at the University of Canberra. Nursing has a central value of informed caring with an emphasis on working to enable people to prevent and manage disease in the broader community. Midwifery has an emphasis on working with well women to grow, birth and mother healthy babies. Your decisions about which degree to enrol in or whether you should attain both qualifications needs to be guided by where you think you might want to work in the short and long term. I am finishing a Diploma (Enrolled Nursing) at CIT What do I have to do to get into the B Nursing at UC? How much credit will I get? The Bachelor of Nursing is made up of a total of 72 credit points. If you have completed the Diploma of Nursing at CIT you will be given academic status for 24 credit points. This means that if you are studying Full Time, you will complete the Bachelor of Nursing in two years. How many hours a week will I be in classes and at pracs - and how much time will I have for paid work to pay the bills etc? If you are studying Full Time in the Bachelor of Nursing, you will usually be spending around 9-10 hours in lectures and tutorials each week. You will also usually be enrolled in a unit with a clinical learning component and this means that you will need to attend clinical placements for blocks of 3-4 weeks (5 days per week). The number of blocks will increase as you progress through the course. I already have a degree in IT (etc) what credit would I get... There is an accelerated degree offered in the Bachelor of Nursing that will usually take 2.5 years of Full Time study on the basis of academic status granted for a completed first degree. You will need to apply for this credit to be transferred to the Bachelor of Nursing. Your first degree needs to be an area in which there will be knowledge and skills that are transferable to the nursing degree. Examples would be a Bachelor of Science with a major in human biology, a Bachelor of Arts degree or an undergraduate degree in Psychology and so on. Can I start in second semester? It is possible to start the Bachelor of Nursing degree in the second semester. However, because there are usually prerequisite units in first semester, it may be necessary to start

2 your degree Part Time and you will need to seek course advice to make sure that you are able to complete the degree in the shortest time frame. I am in Year 10. What subjects should I do for year 11 and 12? It is assumed that you have a level of written and spoken English proficiency that is adequate for study at university. Recommended school subjects include Mathematics, English, Science (biology or chemistry), and subject such as Social Psychology can be helpful. I have not got an ATAR (Year 12 certificate) etc. What pathways can I enter? You can still enrol at University of Canberra. Your work experience will be valuable background knowledge for your university education in the Bachelor of Nursing. If you haven t studied for a while there are some pathway courses offered through the UC College that will help you develop the skills and confidence to study successfully at university. Can I do my practical in block or do I have to do in on a weekly basis? When you enrol in the Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Canberra you will do your clinical learning in intensive blocks of time (usually 3-4 weeks) during the semester. The number of clinical intensives will increase as you progress through the course. In between clinical learning intensives, you will have opportunities to discuss and reflect on your experiences and your learning in a classroom setting. What can I do afterwards? Can I go on to do Medicine? Completing a Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Canberra offers you a variety of interesting and different career opportunities in health care with the unique nursing perspective of informed caring. Medicine is a quite different degree and has a different approach to nursing, however there are some post graduate Medical degrees for those who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree and if you achieve a high enough GPA and meet the other criteria, you could certainly apply Registered Nurses are an essential part of the health workforce and are employed in the community, acute care, long term health setting in clinical, education and policy development areas and in research and academia.

Will I need to keep studying? What is a Grad year? The landscape of health is dynamic and requires practitioners who are able to be continuously effective. Further study will enhance your capacity to make a contribution to

3 the health of the community at the same time as allowing you to reach your own potential as a Registered Nurse.
