The Bachelor of Nursing places a strong emphasis on professional nursing theory and practice, which is underpinned by a philosophy of person-centered and holistic care.
Besides that, Holmesglen is famous for training competent, talented clinicians that can provide tailored client care while being sensitive to cultural variations, using safe, moral clinical judgment, and having great communication skills.
Also, you are prepared for practice through a combination of classroom theory and the most modern simulation exercises offered in our state-of-the-art simulation apartments and clinical wards.
At our Moorabbin campus health precinct, we have invested more than $5 million in the construction of Victoria's top-notch health training facilities and equipment. In a safe learning environment, Holmesglen students practice actual nursing techniques frequently.
By placing a strong emphasis on inter-professional learning, you will acquire practical skills that will help you operate as a member of a healthcare team.
Besides that, your supported clinical practice will take place at a variety of hospital settings around Victoria. You will be introduced to clinical practice early on in the course through a variety of clinical assignments, including aged care, acute and subacute, community, mental health, paediatric, and high-dependency nursing.
