Nursing enrolment and placement information

This page is your central resource for information and notices about nursing placement and enrolments. You'll be notified of any updates via your student email.

Your group allocations and timetable are designed to ensure that you can complete your program requirements, without classes clashing with your placement dates.

Class start dates in certain courses will be staggered and some groups will start earlier or later than the usual semester dates to align with placement availability.

It is essential that you enrol in your courses early so we know how many students need to be allocated into placement groups. It also provides the information used to plan the class timetable, aiming to provide a suitable option for everyone. For assistance to plan your remaining courses, visit managing your progression.

Check the key enrolment dates in the academic calendar. 

Health placements and COVID-19

Check your mandatories are up-to-date, view announcements and important dates on SONIA.

COVID-19 continues to have an impact on learning and placement for many students, particularly in health and vulnerable settings. Find out more about COVID-19 and placement requirements.

It is important that you closely monitor your USC student email account and make sure your personal contact details are up-to-date so we can communicate any updates as they arise.
