Wintec Information Session
Are you thinking about study options that are best suited to you? Join us for an information session at our Hamilton City Campus and find out how you can get started.
This programme is suitable for students who want to study nursing or midwifery, but don’t have the required science credits or who want to boost their science confidence before they start.
Please note, entry into this programme is by referral only. If you want to discuss your options, please contact the Enrolment Centre.
Students will study basic biology, chemistry, microbiology and mathematics (in the context of drug and drip calculations).
Students will complete a range of online activities, including lessons and exercises, watch video clips, try some quizzes, complete online multiple choice tests, and complete formal assessments.
Candidates are required to have at least 14 credits each at NCEA Level 3 in Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Science or equivalent for the Bachelor of Nursing (along with other prerequisite subjects). Bachelor of Midwifery candidates are required to have at least 14 credits at NCEA Level 3 in Biology or Chemistry, or equivalent (along with other prerequisite subjects).
This pathway is designed to help students attain the science prerequisites for entry into the Bachelor of Nursing or Bachelor of Midwifery programmes.
If students choose not to pursue a Nursing or Midwifery pathway, they can cross credit what they have learnt towards a Diploma in Technology (Science) (Level 6).
Please check the entry criteria for each programme to see which course is the best level for you to begin with. The entry criteria information can be found on each of the programme pages here online. You can also contact us directly to discuss the appropriate level for you at email@example.com.
