Welcome to Adelaide Nursing School
Adelaide Nursing School promotes world-class nursing research, scholarship and clinical practice and actively supports the community through student-centred degrees and research.
We invite you to take a look at our clinically-focused degrees and evidence-based research activities to determine how we can help fulfil your lifelong journey in nursing.Professor Alison Kitson, Dean of Nursing
At Adelaide Nursing School you can study a range of outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate nursing degrees.
If you want to join the profession, the Bachelor of Nursing offers a unique combination of academic rigour and real world clinical experience from year one, right up to the point of registration.
If you’re seeking a career in nursing and already have a degree in another discipline, there’s the Master of Clinical Nursing. This program conveys the professional knowledge, skills and attitudes underpinning the registered nurse’s role, and develops critical competencies for practice (as determined by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council).
We can also assist if you’re a registered nurse looking to advance your knowledge and/or career by specialising or researching in a particular area. Adelaide Nursing School has been delivering postgraduate clinical education to registered nurses around the world since 1995.
