Students rank course top across all areas in national survey

The undergraduate nursing course at Avondale is still number one in Australia as ranked by the people who matter—our students.

The latest and only comprehensive national survey of higher education students ranks our Bachelor of Nursing top across all focus areas—skills development, learner engagement, teaching quality, student support, learning resources and quality of the educational experience. This is the best result of the 37 universities and higher education providers offering the course. Again—this is the third consecutive year nursing at Avondale has been top across all areas.

Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Kerri-Lee Krause thanks students for their feedback and congratulates staff members in the School of Nursing and Health for their “top performance at the highest level.” Head of School Tamera Gosling says the rankings are a “fantastic outcome” that reflects “the fine work and dedication” of her team.

That “fine work and dedication” includes “personal commitment to providing a high-quality degree focussed on meeting quality and safety standards in practice, dedication to providing a holistic learning experience for students, and facilitating excellent nursing simulation teaching and clinical experiences.”

Almost half the undergraduate students enrolled at Avondale in September this past year—including at least 192 Bachelor of Nursing students—completed the 2022 Student Experience Survey, well above the national average response rate of 37 per cent.

The Student Experience Survey helps higher education institutions and the government improve teaching and learning outcomes for students. It is part of the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching survey program and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education.
