Course details

Level of study: Undergraduate


The Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business Administration will prepare you to meet the evolving business management expectations of contemporary health services.

Health is increasingly seen as a business and registered nurses are increasingly moving from bedside care into middle management roles early in their careers where they are expected to take leadership roles in multi-disciplinary teams. As a nurse, you will be required to contribute to the success of that business through effective management of staff and financial resources.

Graduates can pursue a range of careers in government and/or private hospitals, management, education and research, health promotion, and a wide range of occupations that require an understanding of business processes.

Professional experience

Students will undertake clinical placements for nursing only. These placements will occur across a variety of clinical units throughout the course in hospitals and community facilities.

As part of your course, you will be placed in a range of organisations to integrate the theory you learn with practical workplace experiences (placements). As part of your enrolment, you must complete the Faculty of Health Sciences pre-placement requirements.


Graduates can pursue a range of careers in:

  • government and private hospitals
  • management
  • education and research
  • health promotion
  • a wide range of occupations that require an understanding of business processes.

Students with a Student Visa will need to complete the program in minimum duration, study at least one subject on-campus each semester and must not undertake more than 33% of the program online.
