Postgraduate nurses

  • Postgraduate nursing studies

    RCH has partnered with the University of Melbourne as a Centre of Excellence to deliver clinically integrated postgraduate programs. Nurses wishing to undertake postgraduate study in these courses are required to seek endorsement from their Nurse Unit Manager and meet the university course requirements.

    Please click on the link below to view the course details on the University of Melbourne website:

    Interested RCH staff should discuss the possibility of study with their unit Educators and/or Managers, and familiarise themselves with the relevant course requirements and application processes.  A formal Expression of Interest can then be submitted to their Nurse Unit Manager to be considered for endorsement prior to a University of Melbourne application submission.

    Staff interested in other postgraduate courses are encouraged to explore study options and discuss plans with their unit Educators and/or Managers.
