The program is integrated and delivered onsite within Mater’s own facilities. Mater Education’s Diploma of Nursing students study and train in our exceptional clinical simulation facility and learning environment, learning contemporary theoretical knowledge and best-practice clinical skills from highly qualified teachers.

The full-time program is delivered across three semesters, over 18 months. 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.

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

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.
