Bachelor of Nursing / Bachelor of Arts in International Studies

Description

The Bachelor of Nursing Bachelor of Arts in International Studies combines preparation for the role of the registered nurse with immersion in another language and culture, enhancing professional education and career options.


The course offers all the benefits of the UTS Bachelor of Nursing, including clinical placements every semester, use of state-of-the-art facilities, selection of a clinical elective in the final year and development of an e-portfolio. In addition, students gain specific skills in their chosen language and culture and become more aware of the need for intercultural sensitivities, not only through studying another language and culture, but also by living in another country in the fourth year of the course.

Career options for registered nurses include working in diverse specialty areas such as community health, critical care, intensive care, aged care, mental health, operating theatres and paediatrics. Career progression opportunities include working as a clinical nurse consultant, clinical nurse specialist, nurse educator, nurse manager, nurse practitioner or rural and remote practice nurse. Career options are enhanced by international experience, making students more marketable to prospective employers.
