Nursing and allied health
Nurses are involved in collaborative care of individuals, families, and communities. Nurses use their clinical judgment to advocate and promote safe healthcare environments.
Nurses are involved in education, research, shaping health policy and patient care development.
Nursing at RMIT offers a strong theoretical grounding in anatomy, physiology, law, ethics and research-based practice. You’ll also become familiar in a clinical setting as early on as possible.
You’ll learn in fully staffed laboratories that simulate real clinical situations, so by the time you undertake your first placement, you'll already know how nursing workplaces operate, and what to expect from patients.
Our programs are fully accredited by relevant bodies, and are influenced by strong program advisory committees of practising professionals.
Allied health workers work alongside health professionals such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists to facilitate rehabilitation and to encourage optimal health of patients.
Allied health assistants also support the training of people with disabilities to care for themselves and develop independent living skills.
