Course overview

Graduate prepared for a successful career in the largest growing employment sector in Australia^ and develop the knowledge, skills and ethical understanding to become a registered nurse, balanced with the skills required to empower people to lead healthier lifestyles. Deakin's Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Public Health and Health Promotion enables you to make a real difference in the health outcomes of individuals, communities and global populations.

On top of the expertise required to qualify as a registered nurse, graduates can register with the International Union for Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), with Deakin being the only Victorian university to hold this accreditation. The course balances contemporary theory with extensive placement experience, and combined approaches involving community engagement, policy development, and research. Graduate career-ready with 920 hours of work placements in both nursing and public health and health promotion settings.

Passionate about helping people lead healthier lives, across clinical and community settings?

This combined degree in nursing and public health and health promotion gives you the advantage of learning skills in two differing facets of health care. Public health is the organised response by society to protect and promote health and prevent disability. By looking at patterns of health and disease across populations, public health experts can use data and evidence-based measures to address the world’s biggest health challenges. Health promotion is about working with communities to improve health and champion factors that support good health – be they environmental, legal, physical, economic or social.

You will study the foundations of modern health promotion practice, covering key study areas such as:

  • biostatistics
  • environmental health
  • epidemiology
  • health sociology
  • planning and evaluation.

While you will graduate with a suite of specialised and highly sought-after healthcare skills, you will also enter the workforce with lifelong transferable skills, in areas such as: 

  • research
  • analytical thinking
  • project management
  • communication
  • community development.

Deakin’s purpose-built Clinical Simulation Centres for nursing students simulate real healthcare settings. They provide you with the facilities and equipment required to develop practical nursing skills, which are further enhanced through your clinical placements. 

In your final year, you will also have the opportunity to complete the Public Health and Health Promotion Practicum unit, giving you 120 hours of invaluable practical experience in the health industry.

    Fee information

    Fee rate

    Estimated tuition fees - CSP: 2023 fees are currently unavailable due to a delay in the student contribution rates set by the Australian Government.

    The tuition fees you pay will depend on the units you choose to study as each unit has its own costs. The 'Estimated tuition fee' is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students undertaking the first year of this course. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the time it takes to complete your course and any approved Recognition of Prior Learning you have.

    Each unit you enrol in has a credit point value. The 'Estimated tuition fee' is calculated by adding together 8 credit points of a typical combination of units for that course. Eight credit points is used as it represents a typical full-time enrolment load for a year.

    You can find the credit point value of each unit under the Unit Description by searching for the unit in the Handbook.
