Diploma of Nursing now available to study at Mater

Mater Private Hospital Townsville and Mater Education are excited to partner to offer a new opportunity for Townsville students – from January 2020 Mater Education’s Diploma of Nursing program will be delivered onsite at our hospital campus in Pimlico.

This new campus will offer students a unique opportunity to study nursing onsite at Mater, and to learn from contemporary clinicians, in a practical, supportive and immersive environment, right from day one.

The program will be integrated and delivered onsite within Mater’s own facilities, with students studying and training in our exceptional clinical simulation facilities and learning environment, learning contemporary theoretical knowledge and best-practice clinical skills from highly qualified teachers. 

Mater Education is Queensland’s only nationally accredited, independent, hospital-based Registered Training Organisation. More than 750 students have graduated from their Diploma of Nursing program since it commenced in Brisbane in 2010.

The program will be delivered across three semesters, over 18 months (full-time). Mater Education students gain workplace experience placement across some of Mater’s exceptional hospitals and healthcare services, and carefully chosen hospital, aged care and community care partners.

Just as people from all walks of life need care, they can also make exceptional nurses. The program suits both school leavers and mature learners desiring a rewarding career change. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and people with diverse academic, work and life experiences are encouraged to apply.
Mater Education students need to apply directly, not through QTAC. Applications to commence study in January close Friday 8 November. For more information about Mater Education’s Diploma of Nursing program, and to apply, visit the website
