Access to vital practical and theoretical learning awaits nurses who undertake the Graduate Certificate in Primary Care Nursing. Develop your existing nursing skills in caring for patients with on-line theory combined with tasks completed in the workplace. The program’s versatility also means you’ll be able to tailor your study time around your existing professional workload.

This course will also help create stronger pathways to further study, including Masters of Advanced Nursing Practice (Nurse Practitioner).


Graduates from this course are able to enhance their nursing career by gaining the clinical skills and knowledge to increase their current scope of practice. This course also allows you to increase your provision of comprehensive evidence-based patient care.

As a student of the course, you have the opportunity to become a nurse immuniser by completing the  Immunisation and Travel Health subject.

Unlike comparable courses at other universities, this program includes a clinical placement – usually within a council or in a general practice. This is an extremely valuable component of the course, as it is offers graduates a considerable advantage when it comes to finding employment, especially in local government.
