Why study the Graduate Certificate in Nursing

This program is ideal for registered nurses who do not currently hold a Bachelor of Nursing. It also allows students to gain a sense of the requirements for postgraduate study without making a commitment to a Masters degree, and enable others to exit the Masters program after one semester of study (full time equivalent) with a qualification.

Once successfully completed, students will be eligible to apply for the Master of Advanced Nursing or Master of Nurse Practitioner programs.
