Nursing Papers at Tauranga (2024)
Nursing plays a pivotal role in providing, leading and coordinating care that is compassionate, evidence-based and person-centred. At Waikato, we look at the needs of the diverse and changing Aotearoa population to create a Registered Nurse who is culturally competent, supportive and can care for the individual and family across the lifespan.
Nursing is offered through the Bachelor of Nursing (BNurs), the Bachelor of Nursing with Honours (BNurs(Hons)) and the Master of Nursing Practice (MNursPrac). For more information, contact the Programme Convenor for Nursing.
To complete the BNurs, students must complete the programme set out below.
For a full list of offerings in this subject, including those available in Hamilton and online, see the Catalogue of Papers. Not all qualifications and subjects can be taken in full in Tauranga. See what can be studied in Tauranga.
