Outline

The Child and Adolescent Health Nursing specialisation is available to study as a graduate certificate and as part of the Master of Advanced Practice. It is suitable for registered nurses who are interested in the design and implementation of early-intervention strategies at the individual, family and community level. 

Key components include: 

  •  child and adolescent health within the collaborative primary healthcare framework, and best practice sociocultural health support 
  •  physical and psychosocial development of children aged 0 to 18 years within family, education and community environments 
  •  applying the evidence-based community models of healthcare planning and clinical decision-making. 

Your learning will be consolidated with a clinical placement that includes interprofessional learning and collaboration. Prior to your clinical placement you’ll complete a five-day, pre-clinical skills workshop* at Curtin Perth. 

The Child and Adolescent Health Nursing specialisation is offered as an online course studied on a part-time basis only. We recommend that you study one or two units per semester. 

See our handbook for more course information. 

* There are no fees for this workshop. Students travelling to Perth to complete the workshop must arrange (and fund) their travel and accommodation.
