Monash nursing graduates are sought after worldwide due to the quality of evidence-based teaching and clinical practice experience they receive. The Bachelor of Nursing provides you with the knowledge and clinical skills to provide high-quality nursing care.

You will also have the scope to provide care in multiple settings, including acute care, primary health care, mental health and health promotion. Monash nursing will prepare you for increasingly complex health care situations in Australia and internationally.

According to the 2024 QS World University Rankings by Subject (Nursing), Monash University is ranked #2 in Australia and #21 in the world.


The Monash Bachelor of Nursing develops through theme studies in human bioscience; the sociocultural context of health and illness; clinical assessment and nursing practice; and professional practice, which come together in nursing practice as demonstrated in the final-year clinical placement units.

Throughout the course you will connect theory to clinical practice, with plenty of opportunities for clinical experience in diverse settings throughout Victoria. You may also take up the opportunity to study and undertake clinical placements in Sweden or the UK.

Your clinical and professional skills will be reinforced through time spent working with excellent mentors and students enrolled in other health science courses (occupational therapy, physiotherapy, paramedic practice, medical imaging, nutrition and dietetics, social work), enabling you to develop the important capacity for interdisciplinary service delivery and inter-professional education.
