The purpose of this course is to prepare the post-registration nurse for advanced nursing practice with an in-depth understanding of human pathophysiology of the major body systems, their alterations and health assessment. Building upon an existing knowledge of physiology this course will provide clinicians with an opportunity to develop advanced level knowledge of pathophysiology and health assessment for application in the clinical setting.
* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
