    Bachelor of Nursing Science - Bachelor of Midwifery

    It’s a great course that I would highly recommend to anyone who has an interest in nursing and/or midwifery. The rural and remote element incorporated into these degrees has given me a new insight into health care, which many other universities don’t include.

    Bachelor of Nursing Science - Bachelor of Midwifery

    Nursing and Midwifery at JCU is the perfect synergy of theoretical learning and practical experience. Placements take you from the red dust of Mt Isa to the remote villages of Papua New Guinea. The experience is incomparable. The biggest gift is that you leave with a true appreciation of the power of health care.

    Bachelor of Nursing Science/Bachelor of Midwifery students have the option to undertake placement overseas in one of our three programs running currently. When students are on these placements, the personal and professional growth is phenomenal to see as it challenges them on every level.
