This course provides Registered Nurses with an opportunity to obtain an Australian degree if they hold a diploma level qualification in their country of origin.
Students granted full advanced standing (16 units) will then be required to complete the remaining eight units of study and upon successful completion will obtain a Bachelor of Science (Nursing Studies) degree from Edith Cowan University.
After completion of the degree, nurses will be eligible to work in the UK, Middle East and other countries where an Australian Nursing degree is recognised and required for work permit, in addition to other requirements.
The course is not professionally-accredited and therefore does not lead to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
*There are 16 additional units that may be credited as Advanced Standing, allowing students to complete the course in one year.
*Please note these units are subject to change and should be used as an overview. Unit availability may differ upon each intake.
Academic: All applicants are required to be Registered Nurse in their country of original or should have a recognised equivalent Diploma.
English: IELTS 6.0 with no band less than 6.0 or equivalent.
