Bachelors of Nursing / Midwifery

Double your professional worth and carer opportunities by earning two degrees from one of Australia’s leading nursing and midwifery schools.

Imagine the difference you could make to the lives of young and old, mothers, babies and entire families with an exciting, diverse and rewarding career in nursing and midwifery.

UQ’s innovative Bachelors of Nursing / Midwifery dual degree program takes a narrative and patient/woman-focused approach to learning, integrating practice across diverse, complex and dynamic healthcare environments.

You'll benefit from a program that links theory and practice through a variety of teaching methods, including narrative workshops, online learning and clinical simulation.

You'll integrate theory with practice across a range of healthcare settings, undertaking more than 1000 hours of supervised clinical placement in a range of clinical settings that include hospitals and a variety of other healthcare organisations.

Included in these hours are 10 ‘continuity of care’ experiences that are completed over the duration of the program. Providing continuity of care involves accompanying a woman and her family through the pregnancy, labour, birth and postpartum experience. You'll also have opportunities to engage with innovative models of healthcare, such as telehealth.

Students may receive the opportunity to undertake a placement outside the Brisbane metropolitan area. Additionally, subsidised international placement opportunities may be available, subject to funding.

Program highlights

  • Gain knowledge and professional recognition across two programs.
  • Start your practical experience in your first semester, where you'll undertake rostered clinical placement shifts and clinical skills simulations.
  • Consolidate your knowledge and skills through extended clinical placements in your final year, streamlining your transition from student to registered nurse.
