Programme overview

The Bachelor of Nursing (BNurs) degree is a 4 year, full-time course.
The degree programme includes theoretical study at the Braamfontein and medical school campuses and clinical training at university affiliate hospitals, community clinics and special areas such as specialist units in hospitals and the health care train.
The curriculum includes a core of knowledge in the biological, natural, physical and social sciences as well as the theory and practice of nursing science. A strong emphasis on the sciences is a characteristic of a Wits Bachelor’s degree in Nursing.
Nursing courses commence in the first year with correlated periods of community based learning activities and in the second semester, hospital-based clinical practice. These become incremental over the next four years of the degree.
