UCOL has been creating exceptional Bachelor of Nursing Graduates for over 30 years. The personal approach to our Bachelor of Nursing programme ensures you get your nursing career off to the best possible start.
When you enrol in UCOL’s Bachelor of Nursing you’ll be assigned your own personal tutor to guide you through your nursing journey. They’ll support you through the curriculum, which includes 240 hours of clinical placement in your first year. Later in the programme these clinical experiences will include primary health care, medical and surgical, and mental health settings.
You’ll be taught by industry experienced nurses in the best facilities available in New Zealand. This includes access to the newly installed nursing simulation laboratory, an innovative new technological teaching tool that allows you to work through authentic patient practice situations in a controlled and safe environment.
