A Fellowship allows students to complete the majority, if not all, of their clinical learning for the entire degree in one hospital or health network. This enables students to become socialised to a specific hospital environment with the aim of enhancing the clinical learning experience, and employment prospects with that organisation.
Fellowships are available with the following health care organisations:
- Alfred Health (Burwood students)
- Barwon Health (Waterfront students)
- Eastern Health (Burwood students)
- Epworth HealthCare (Burwood students)
- Healthscope- Knox Private, Melbourne Private (Burwood students)
- Monash Health (Burwood students)
- St. John of God- Geelong Hospital (Waterfront students)
- St. John of God Warrnambool (Warrnambool students)
- The Valley Private Hospital (Burwood students)
- Western Health (Burwood and Waterfront students- Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Midwifery only)
The School of Nursing and Midwifery Fellowship program is offered in a number of health care organisations in Melbourne, Geelong and Warrnambool.
International study tours
Approach your studies from a different perspective by going on one of our undergraduate international study tours.
The tours run for two to four weeks and give you the opportunity to learn about health care delivery in a different country.
Experience a different culture while you gain credit towards your degree. Currently, our students can travel to:
- The Philippines.
Find out what happens on our international study tours and hear first-hand what our students and staff enjoy most about the experience.
Nursing was never about a piece of paper, or just a career. It was a way of living that I was passionate about, especially how you could impact communities. Working in both big cities like Manila, and small villages on surrounding islands, opened up possibilities to empower children, families, university students and the elderly alike.
