MHGNP Information Sheet
The minimum tertiary education requirement for graduates on Banksia ward is to enroll in a graduate diploma of mental health nursing. There are a number of university who provide this course, including the University of Melbourne, La Trobe, ACU, and RMIT. Graduates are able to choose the university which best suits their needs, and must commence their studies within their graduate year. We understand the demands of tertiary study alongside a graduate program, a new role, and maintaining a work-life balance, and therefore support a flexible and individualised approach to study.
