The College of Nursing and Health Sciences spans a comprehensive range of practical programs to give students the opportunity for a satisfying career in health. Underpinning theory is strongly supported by practical experience, both at the University, and in placements. Our courses are delivered by experts in their field, informed by leading-edge research, much of it in partnership with the health sector. This is a really exciting time to be at the University. For me, the introduction of colleges
means that we can really harness the great work we’re doing around student
satisfaction and student centered support, and focus on providing an
absolutely outstanding service delivery across the whole university. Our new college research is around people and health. We’re literally interested in the
health of people from birth to death, across the whole life course. And we want to use this knowledge to improve individual care, and also to improve the health of our communities. The College Nursing and Health Sciences offers a diverse range of opportunities for learning in health care and disability. There’s a range of postgraduate and undergraduate qualifications, which prepare graduates for their work in the healthcare sector, or the disability sector. Our studies allow students to have innovative experiences, such as e-learning and work integrated learning experiences, which are great chances for
students to work in the field in their discipline area. The Torrens Resiliance Institute was established in 2009, it works across Flinders University, across many disciplines, to address the needs of individuals, organisations, and
communities, confronted by disaster or other emergency events. It’s connected very strongly to the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, and contains the World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Mass Gatherings and Global Health Security which works on new infectious diseases, and major events across the world. Student focused courses using first-class facilities, and taught by top professionals, makes Flinders University the best place to study.
