Epworth HealthCare has partnerships with Universities and TAFEs (Technical and Further Education) for undergraduate nursing programs at all Epworth campuses. This is a great opportunity to experience what Epworth has to offer towards undergraduate education and the state of the art services that we provide to our clients.

We use the Simulation Laboratory for educational development and enhancement of clinical skills to ensure a safe, supportive and realistic clinical environment. Students learn and practice skills at each stage of their nursing degree, developing more complex care skills as they progress. The students have the opportunity to practice their skills with advanced simulation manikins and skill based manikins. Read more about our state-of-the-art simulation facilities.
