The Bachelor of Nursing Science is once again the University of the Sunshine Coast’s most sought-after study program.
USC has offered 232 places to new Nursing Science students in Semester 1 this year, following offers made by QTAC (Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre) today.
The degree was introduced in 2007 and has been USC’s most popular since.
