Your training is in capable hands

As a nurse, you will work with a team of professional health practitioners in situations where patients rely on your skills and training. Put your career in safe hands with us and learn with the very latest technology and experienced nursing teachers.

Health services is about more than just nursing though - we also offer courses ranging from aged care, massage and dental to reflexology and natural therapy, so you can be ready to provide the best care possible.

What our students say

"Choosing to undertake a TAFE course turned out to be a fantastic decision. As a mature aged student I really benefited from the face to face style of learning TAFE offers. The curriculum was industry specific and the lecturers were all approachable industry professionals who prepared me for real workplace situations. I had a vocational goal, and it was my TAFE course that helped me to gain the necessary qualifications and to then obtain an amazing job."

"The resources at uni are so much more realistic and better for learning than some older mannequins I've learned on, I never thought we'd be here - it's been such an amazing experience for all of us. The TAFE nursing team have been so supportive here too - we can talk with them about anything and they give us the best help they can. It's an amazing opportunity TAFE has given us to be here at USC."
