Nursing and midwifery clinical placement resources

Clinical placement is designed to:

  • complement the theoretical program of the Bachelor of Nursing
  • allow students to develop skills commensurate with their progress in the course
  • integrate theoretical knowledge with nursing practice

Clinical placement is a compulsory component of the Bachelor of Nursing program representing approximately fifty percent (50%) of the total program. It is essential that students successfully complete their clinical placements in order to pass the relevant unit and successfully complete the Bachelor of Nursing program. Please refer to the Nursing Clinical Placement Guidelines (pdf, 480kb).
