The Cancer and Haematology Nursing program at the University of Sydney aims to assist nurses who care for people affected by cancer and haematological illness to develop the knowledge and skills for their care. You will investigate the biology of cancer and haematology, associated treatments, and integrated multidisciplinary management. 


The Cancer and Haematology Nursing program at the University of Sydney states that cancer is the single largest cause of premature death in Australia, and represents nearly one-fifth of the total burden of disease in the health system. As a cancer and haematology nursing student, you will develop a comprehensive knowledge of the prevention, diagnosis and management of cancer, future treatment trends and explore the impact of these illnesses on the individual, family and community.

During this one and a half year degree, you will be led by leading cancer and haematology care researchers and will learn to make evidence-based decisions using research generated at our Cancer Nursing Research Unit an innovative collaboration between the Sydney Nursing School and the Sydney Local Health District. A work-based project or research thesis will comprise the capstone experience of this degree, providing the opportunity for you to apply your expertise as you explore a particular area of your interest.
