The Clinical Nursing programme at the University of Newcastle has been designed for registered nurses to develop their skills, knowledge, and the ability to respond to complex patient situations in specialised clinical environments.
With the opportunity to specialise in emergency, acute medical/surgical care, critical care, mental health, older person care or public health, this program will provide you with the theoretical foundation and clinical knowledge and skills to see you succeed.
The University of Newcastle Graduate Certificate in Clinical Nursing will qualify you to work independently and collaboratively with a range of other health professionals, in a variety of clinical settings. With an increasing demand for qualified and experienced people in nursing, long term employment and career progression is possible.
Upon the successful completion of the Graduate Certificate, you will be qualified to work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist. You will also be eligible to gain entry into a number of Master programs, including the Master of Nursing, where you can continue in your chosen speciality.
