AUT is one of the leading nursing educators in New Zealand, and our Nursing department is part of health sciences at AUT.

All our nursing courses are dynamic and evolve with the latest research and needs of the healthcare sector. Our strong links to district health boards, hospitals and private practices ensure that our students gain extensive clinical experience, while our research programmes focus on advancing knowledge to improve patient outcomes and recovery.
