Graduate Diploma of Nursing

The Graduate Diploma of Nursing from James Cook University helps Registered Nurses, who have previously completed a Bachelor of Nursing, embrace advanced practice and expand their skills.

Students develop the theoretical knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary to apply advanced nursing concepts in a clinical environment. Choosing between two majors, Leadership and Management or Education, students will learn how to lead and manage healthcare teams; develop complementary business-related skills in areas such as finance and budgeting, and acquire the skills needed to facilitate effective adult learning. 

The course is 100% online, allowing flexibility for career and family commitments and offering real-time support and engagement.
