The Sydney Nursing School is highly regarded nationally and internationally for academic excellence, quality teaching and innovative research. In 2012, Sydney Nursing School introduced a new Bachelor of Nursing (Advanced Studies) program to broaden available preregistration nursing opportunities at the University of Sydney. Sydney Nursing School also has an exciting suite of advanced and specialised nursing programs in Cancer and Haematology, Advanced Nursing Practice, Clinical Trials Practice, Emergency, Intensive Care, Mental Health, Primary Health Care and Nurse Practitioner, and a range of research initiatives linked to these areas. Preregistration students can maintain broad study interests by linking their bachelor degree in arts, science or health sciences to a Master of Nursing, through combined degree courses. The preregistration Master of Nursing can also provide a career pathway for graduate entry students.
