Nursing Education

Creating excellence in clinical practice is the driving force of St Vincent's Nursing Education Centre and our training and development underpin St Vincent’s strategic plan.

The Nursing Education Centre programs and processes are a continuing demonstration of the organisation's mission and values.

St Vincent’s continues to offer diverse educational opportunities to our community of nurses ranging from undergraduate students and graduate nurses to nurses working towards expert level by completing postgraduate studies in their clinical area.

The Nursing Education Centre is a multi-campus department with education staff based at St Vincent’s Hospital, St Georges Hospital, Caritas Christi Hospice, our Correctional Health facilities (Port Phillip, Youth Support and Advocacy Services (YSAS)) and the residential areas.
