It is essential that you undertake the course in the order that is listed in the course structure; pre-requisite units and co-requisite units must be completed in order to progress in your study.
It is particularly important to look at professional experience placement units and the terms in which they are offered (NB: professional experience placement units in years 2 and 3 of the course are offered only once each year).Entering the course with credit for prior learning during Term 2 may impact on completing on a full time pathway due to Professional Experience Practice units only being available once each year in years 2 and 3 of the course. Students are advised to commence in Term 1 if requiring a full time pathway.
You are required to successfully complete Professional Experience Placement 5 in the final term of study to enable CQUniversity to recommend you for registration at the completion of your degree.
The majority of units on Bundaberg, Cairns, Townsville and Mackay campuses are only available online. Professional Experience Practice units require attendance and successful completion of safe medication administration and practical assessments at residential school/on-campus workshops prior to being eligible to attend professional experience placement.
Specific requirements for professional experience placement in some units may vary due to individual organisational requirements outside of CQUniversity control.
In line with accreditation requirements, aspects of the course may be subject to change during your enrolment. These changes may relate to course structure, unit names and content, professional experience placement hours and/or mandatory checks.
