Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business Administration
Australian Catholic University - Brisbane

Course outline

The Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business Administration double degree develops caring professional nurses able to meet the evolving business management expectations of our health services. Registered nurses are increasingly moving into management roles early in their careers and are expected to take leadership roles in multidisciplinary teams. In the wide range of practice settings, from hospitals to aged care, general practice, private practice and the community, health is increasingly seen as a business, and nurses are required to contribute to the success of that business through effective management of staff and financial resources. The addition of the Bachelor of Business Administration provides students with commercial knowledge and understanding – including accounting, finance, marketing and business law – with only one additional year of study.
