Course Summary


The MSc in Nursing is an accelerated nursing course leading to registration as an adult or mental health nurse.

Nursing is a rewarding and challenging career that can offer you a wealth of opportunities once you have qualified. As an autonomous registered nurse, in either the Adult or Mental Health field of practise, you will have the opportunity to work alongside people experiencing changes to their health and wellbeing.

Why study MSc Nursing?

If you already have a Bachelor’s degree with Honours from any field of academic study, you can qualify as a nurse in two years on our MSc course instead of three years on a BSc Nursing degree.

If you are unsure which field of nursing practice (Adult or Mental Health) is right for you, on our course you can change your chosen field at the end of the first semester.

Your future career

Successful completion of the MSc Nursing will make you eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a registered adult or mental health nurse. This will open up a wide range of exciting career opportunities for you including working in specialist clinical practice, management, education, research or using your skills in the armed forces. You could also choose to travel and explore the possibility of practising overseas.

Additionally, on successful completion of the course there are opportunities within the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing to progress onto further postgraduate continuing professional development, including specialist education and PhD studies.


The aim of the module is to increase mental health nursing knowledge, understanding and skills in delivering biopsychosocial interventions, based upon the collaborative formulation of problems and person-centred care planning.
