To gain the Graduate Certificate in Nursing Practice you must complete 50 credit points comprising of:
- Three core subjects
- Two core selective subjects.
You must choose selectives from the same area of focus, e.g. either Cardiorespiratory or Renal nursing, as the practical subject relates directly to the specialty subject.
Subjects are offered in the following terms:
Applied Pathophysiology – Term 1 and Term 3
Nursing Specialty 1 and Nursing Practice 1 – Term 2
Nursing Specialty 2 and Nursing Practice 2 (cardiorespiratory or renal) – Term 3
The estimated hours required for each subject is approximately 21 hours per week, but this varies for each student and depends on your task management and planning, familiarity with the material, reading style and speed.
