    There are many options when looking to study nursing in Australia. Deakin University offers a three year bachelor of nursing degree, which is recognised by the local nursing board. It's important that you study at an institution that has recognition as well as has great links into hospitals where you can do your practical. I recommend checking out the Deakin website and The Bachelor of Nursing to find out more information about the couse structure and how to become a registered nurse in Australia.
