The Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) at the University of Sydney develops a comprehensive understanding of professional nursing practice. Combining practical learning with extensive clinical placements, this degree will enable you to launch your career in health care.

As a Sydney nursing student, you will learn from leading experts about human biology, physiology, and pharmacology, as well as the differing areas of nursing including ageing, child and adolescent care, and mental health. Teaching takes place throughout lectures, tutorials, simulation clinics and through wide-ranging clinical placements.


During this three-year degree, your units are structured into four broad areas interwoven into your learning experiences throughout the course: underpinnings of nursing practice; health, development and assessment; contexts of practice; and nursing and practice. The advanced studies element of this program underpins all these areas of study and focuses on cultivating leadership, using research to make evidence-based decisions and enhancing your understanding of the international health landscape.

Alongside your classroom studies, you will gain invaluable practical experience through more than 800 hours of clinical placements across a wide variety of healthcare settings including emergency departments, intensive care units, paediatric units, mental health facilities and community health centres.

With a wide and growing field of practice across the public and private healthcare systems, this degree will prepare you to thrive in both local and global health environments as you work with other health professionals to provide high quality patient-centred care.
