Nurses provide valued services to their communities in the provision of health care and the promotion of health and well-being. This degree provides a broad educational foundation for general nursing practice and pathways to future professional employment. It allows students to develop a diverse range of skills in communication, research, clinical reasoning, client care, and judgement. Students also gain clinical experience in a wide variety of health agencies throughout Victoria, Australia and overseas. Graduates will be eligible for registration as registered nurses with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.


Unique Features of the Program

Monash University offers a medium-sized school of nursing with a wide range of ages, cultures and backgrounds within its student body that allows for multiple perspectives to be explored during the program and is undertaken in an environment that fosters individual and group development.


Why International Students Like to Study this Program

Monash has a strong history of involvement with, and support of, international students. The campuses on which the nursing course is undertaken are compact with smaller student numbers, so close interaction with staff and students is facilitated. Each year, a number of international students choose Monash nursing and this enables peer support and involvement by this group of students. The course offers an opportunity to undertake nursing studies in Australia in a supported environment.


Professional Certification/Accreditation Information

Practicing in Australia

Graduates can register with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia to become registered nurses in Australia and many overseas countries.

Returning to Canada to Practice

All nursing professions are regulated in Canada. This means that you must be registered with one of the provincial or territorial regulatory bodies to be authorized to practise as a nurse in Canada. The regulatory body for nursing in each province and territory handles the assessment of qualifications for internationally educated nurses and the scheduling of nurses to write the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination.

Graduates from Canada who wish to practice as a registered nurse upon their return to Canada should be aware of the certification process for foreign-trained nurses in their province of residence.

For information about the Canadian certification processes for foreign-trained registered nurses, please visit the Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials (CICIC) website.


Admissions Criteria/Entry requirements for Canadians

Eligible applicants must have completed a high school diploma. A minimum GPA of 71% in the best six Ontario Grade 12 subjects or equivalent for students from other provinces. If you have completed post-secondary studies at the college and/or university level, those grades will also be considered.

Applicants must also have passed Grade 12 English and Math.

Please note Monash University charges international applicants a $100 AUD application fee. Your OzTREKK admissions officer will advise you how to make this payment directly to the university.
