Develop your nursing specialisation with the University of Melbourne

With a growing demand for registered nurses who are competent in the technical and highly complex field of acute care nursing, the University of Melbourne has developed the Graduate Certificate in Nursing Practice, with specialisations in cardiac and respiratory nursing, or diabetes and renal nursing.

Offered for the first time in January 2018, this course has been designed to provide registered nurses working in a range of medical and/or surgical settings an opportunity to develop a nursing specialisation while enhancing their career.

Delivered online with an in-hospital practical component, you will have the opportunity to develop highly sought-after clinical knowledge and practical skills. You can also personalise your qualification to match your practice and career aspirations.

As a student of this course you will:

  • Develop specialist knowledge and skills relevant to your role and area of clinical practice
  • Learn and be mentored by nursing experts in the field
  • Undertake workplace clinical assessments at your hospital.

Further details will be available on this website in July 2017.

Applications open soon to commence study in January 2018 (Term 1, 2018).
