Bachelor of Nursing / Bachelor of Business Administration

Australian Catholic University (ACU)

The Bachelor of Nursing/Bachelor of Business Administration will prepare students to meet the evolving business management expectations of contemporary health services.

As a nurse, students will be required to contribute to the success of that business through effective management of staff and financial resources. Graduates can pursue a range of careers in government and/or private hospitals, management, education and research, health promotion, and a wide range of occupations that require an understanding of business processes.
