Some content to in depth but with little relevance to day to day nursing practice in other cases content too brief. My practical experiences were useful but locality was sometimes an issue. One clinical 1 hour from home another 2 1/2 hours from home which meant accommodation costs and other expenses.

Student review
Cqu was a fantastic university to attend for Bachelor of nursing. I was a distance student mostly and was fully accomodated with fantastic placements close to home. Lecturers were leaders within the local nursing community and had an unbelievable knowledge base to share. Cqu would be my first choice when return to study in future.
