Nursing student taking blood pressure of client


A Registered Nurse could focus on mental health, child health, aged care, oncology (cancer), community health, primary health care or workplace health and safety. Or maybe the fast paced nursing in intensive care or the operating theatre is for you. Your day will be spent planning and carrying out nursing care in your specialist area, monitoring patients, recording important changes in patient conditions, giving medication and intravenous drugs, checking equipment and supplies or educating patients and their families about health care needs. As an Enrolled Nurse, you will work across a range of healthcare institutions instead of choosing a specialist area. You will work under the supervision of a registered nurse to care for and educate patients in rehabilitation, acute care, aged care and mental health. With our postgraduate qualifications you can work in Advanced Nursing Practice roles which include nurse educator, clinical leader, clinical nurse specialist, clinical charge nurse, registered nurse prescriber in long term and related conditions, health services manager and case manager/co-ordinator. If you're undertaking the nurse practitioner pathway in our Master of Nursing, upon graduation you can apply to the Nursing Council of New Zealand for the Nurse Practitioner Scope of Practice. Nurse Practitioners provide a wide range of assessment and treatment interventions, ordering and interpreting diagnostic and laboratory tests, prescribing medicines within their area of competence and admitting and discharging from hospital and other healthcare services/settings. As clinical leaders they work across healthcare settings and influence health service delivery and the wider profession. Your study will combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on learning in real healthcare environments. You will have the chance to care for your own patients and learn about the industry through putting classroom learning into practice. And our dedicated and experienced staff will be there to guide you every step of the way.

Foundation/pathway options

It doesn’t matter where you want to go in your career, or if you don’t know exactly what you want to do yet. What matters is getting you started on the journey towards the sort of future you want for yourself, and building your skills and confidence.

Our Foundation programmes are ideal if you don’t meet the entry requirements for a specific course you want to study, you’re unsure of what programme to study, or if you’ve been out of study for a long time. You’ll graduate ready to jump straight into your next course, or with the confidence to use the skills you already have. 

Whatever your goal is, we know you’re capable of achieving it. With a Foundation course, you’ll prove it to yourself.
