Perioperative Nurses are trained to assist with the care of people who are recovering from major operations, and if you enrol in this program, you receive rigorous and demanding training. Classes are held off-Campus at one of our partner health institutions in Western Australia. The program is open to anyone with an undergraduate nursing degree (or equivalent) who is also an employee of one of our affiliated health services – see list below. Once you have completed this program, you may apply for a Master of Nursing (Perioperative), which requires a further year of study.
