Short Courses and Professional Development

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences offers short courses and continuing professional development to support your learning at every stage of your career.

Our courses are designed to be comprehensive, but bite-sized so you can focus on topics that suit you and tailor your skills on your terms.


We are excited to announce the first 2020 release of the Adelaide Nursing School's suite of short courses–specifically designed by our education specialists to provide extended learning and continuing professional development (CPD) for registered nurses, enrolled nurses as well as third and second-year nursing students.

We have three courses available and all will be held on Saturday 18 April, which for the first time will enable delegates to participate in multiple sessions on the same day.
