Bachelor of Nursing now with Blended Delivery 


EIT’s Bachelor of Nursing degree is offered in a “blended delivery” mode which captures the best of technology, the expertise of lecturers and practical clinical experience.  Students engage in face-to-face teaching and learning in classrooms, labs and in clinical settings, but also are supported in their learning by high-quality on-line materials and activities that enable them to study off-campus, review lectures readily, and receive guidance and answers to questions online, in class and in practicum settings.
