Dean's Welcome

Sally Robertson

Welcome to The University of Notre Dame Australia and to the School of Nursing, Sydney, a community of academics and students committed to quality nurse education.

The Bachelor of Nursing programme offered at the Sydney Campus is a dynamic course that was written in consultation with nurse academics from other universities in the Sydney region, hospital based nurse educators, senior nursing administrators and registered nurses from a variety of clinical settings. The mission, goals and outcomes of the curriculum clearly recognise that the primary purpose of nurse education is to produce graduates who are equipped to provide the highest possible quality care in any health care setting. Furthermore, underlying nurse education, research and practice is a commitment to uphold the rights of the individual and to maintain patient dignity at all times.

All Staff of the School of Nursing and the University are dedicated to developing students who will be the professionals of the next generation. The Bachelor of Nursing programme will equip you with the essential knowledge, practice and, attitudes that will prepare you for the role of a professional registered nurse. At the end of the programme you will be able to meet the requirements of the Nurses and Midwifery Board of Australia and be able to work as a beginning practitioner within a variety of health care environments.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Notre Dame Sydney community soon.
