Nurses are critical to the success of the healthcare system, and AUT-trained nurses are recognised as some of the best in New Zealand. Study the Bachelor of Health Science (Nursing) to start your nursing career.
Our nursing degree focuses on interprofessional practice and care, just like it is in the workplace. You'll learn that health and healthcare is multifaceted and dynamic, and goes beyond health and illness care to nurture the growth of healthy communities. Throughout your studies you complete 1,200 hours of practical experience in hospitals and in the community. Graduates who pass the Nursing Council of New Zealand's State Examination gain registration as a Registered Nurse.
Applicants with English as a second or other language who have not completed at least three years of secondary schooling in NZ will be required to meet IELTS requirements.
