Are you an enthusiastic Lecturer in Nursing with the desire to contribute to the professional preparation of nurses?

The School of Health delivers teaching in the areas of Social Work, Humanitarian, Emergency and Disaster Management Studies, Midwifery, Child and Family Health and Nursing. Successful completion of the Bachelor of Nursing course enables students to apply to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia for registration as a Registered Nurse. Undergraduate nursing units are offered in both internal and external modes.

The versatility of the nursing program ensures nursing students, from beginner to more advanced levels including postgraduate coursework and research, are able to pursue lifelong learning and enjoy a range of career opportunities. The University’s Research Centre for Health and Wellbeing supports higher degree by research students and undertakes research as it relates to individuals, groups, families and communities, with a focus on interdisciplinary and intercultural approaches. Areas of strength include Indigenous health and wellbeing, health services research, social impacts on community wellbeing and health care, and clinical research.

As a Lecturer in Nursing you are a member of a course team that contributes the educational and professional preparation of pre-registration and post-graduate nursing students through provision of instruction in the theory and practice of professional nursing and will be expected to contribute to at least one specialist clinical area – for example, mental health, acute care, medical-surgical, renal, community-based, rural and remote. 

To be successful, the attainment of, or working toward a Master's Degree in Nursing is essential as well as a current nursing registration with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
