All students must meet university entrance requirements to be admitted to the University.
This programme is a ‘selected entry’ programme. This means as well as applying you will need to provide additional material as part of your application.
To enter the Bachelor of Nursing you will hold a current First Aid Certificate from an approved provider.
You will be selected into the programme on the basis of a process which includes providing:
a personal supporting statement of about 300 words explaining why you wish to enter the nursing programme and profession, including why you feel you would make a good nurse. List any personal characteristics you have that demonstrate your suitability.
a curriculum vitae of approximately three pages, which should include your academic and work history
provide details of two character referees – these must not be family or friends
if you are applying straight after completing secondary school (or a course at a private training establishment) you will supply a confidential report from your school or institution

provide a current police certificate from any overseas countries you have lived in for 12 months or more in the last 10 years
