Overview

Nurses and midwives are highly skilled health care professionals who combine the art of caring with scientific knowledge and skills. ECU has the largest Nursing program and the only dual Nursing/Midwifery degree in Western Australia. And we have facilities that are the envy of other universities.

Our demonstration wards are as close as you can get to the real thing – until you start your practical work in one of Western Australia’s major hospitals. If the idea of a career in nursing or midwifery gets your pulse racing, look no further than ECU.

Courses

The school offers a diverse and exciting mix of courses that are developed in consultation with industry groups and combine the latest theory with hands-on, practical experiences.

On our study area web page you’ll find course information and videos or galleries of our great facilities, plus hear about their ECU experience from current students or graduates.

You can also check out courses, including undergraduate, postgraduate, graduate entry and online courses (if available).
