The BNurs curriculum reflects our multifaceted healthcare system, presenting a interprofessional view of patient care. During your studies you will be involved in clinical practice blocks and research based-clinical projects. These are designed to develop your critical thinking and practical knowledge. The topics range from mental health nursing and older persons' health, to child and family healthcare, Maori and Pacific health, medical and surgical nursing, management, and leadership in nursing. After successful completion of the BNurs, graduates may apply for registration as a comprehensive nurse with the Nursing Council of New Zealand.
