Professional placement is a highly valued and compulsory part of the Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Midwifery/Nursing.
Engagement and completion of all professional practice units inclusive of 800 placement hours for Nursing and 1656 hours for the Dual Degree is essential to achieve the overall requirements of the course.
This is required as evidence for the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) to be eligible for graduate registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
There is a PEP Communication page set up for each course via VU Collaborate.
