Student nursing placements
The University of Sydney Nursing School is committed to producing excellent graduates who have met all the learning outcomes of their degree as per Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) requirements under the National Law.
Throughout the pandemic, we have been working hard to ensure our students can continue to study with as little disruption as possible, while maintaining the integrity and high academic standards of our programs.
Our accredited Master of Nursing program specifies 860 hours of placement to ensure our graduates are equipped with the clinical and academic skills and experiences they need to become exceptional nurses.
Like all higher education providers of nursing programs, we are currently considering the concessions now available for students who need them and these will be applied on a case-by-case basis according to each student’s specific circumstances.
We have been communicating regularly with our students about their placement options, and the supports and adjustments available to them during this time.
We are very pleased that the vast majority of our nursing students have continued to move through their placements and will graduate on time, ready to support the health care workforce in a professional capacity as registered nurses.
