Course Structure

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.  This will ensure you complete at your projected time as per a full-time or part-time planner. 

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, Mackay and Brisbane 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.
