- Study aged care nursing courses in USQ's Graduate Diploma of Nursing (Gerontology) and further develop your skills in caring for elderly patients with complex needs.
- Understand the foundations of healthy ageing. Refine and extend the skills needed to successfully provide care to patients struggling with dementia.
- Build your knowledge in end-of-life care and develop the communication and skills required to promote quality of life for patients in palliative care.
- Unlike other gerontology courses in Australia, USQ’s gerontology courses are flexible. You can study part-time and online while progressing your career as a registered nurse in the aged care sector.
After completing the Graduate Diploma of Nursing, you can take credit from these courses and continue to complete the Master of Nursing.
