The Graduate Certificate in Nursing Practice (Paediatrics) is a 50 credit point, part-time, clinical coursework program of one year's duration. Students typically take four 12.5 credit point subjects across a year. Admission is based on a Bachelor of Nursing degree (or equivalent training), at least one year of clinical experience in an acute care setting within the five years prior to applying for the course, and current employment and clinical support in a Paediatrics work environment.
The course delivers theoretical content through a combination of on-line study and face to face course delivery at the partner hospital for the clinical speciality. The students’ employing hospital provides clinical practice in a hospital setting.
Students complete 50 credit points of study part-time, over a year, commencing in January with an on-line subject, completing a face to face subject at the partner hospital each semester and a supervised clinical practice subject at their employing hospital across the whole study period.
