MSc - Master of Science
The demand for skilled nurses across the world continues to grow, as do the demands placed on those already within that profession. In order to thrive within nursing, a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development is a must. This course has been developed to allow you to gain new skills and knowledge alongside your existing responsibilities as a nurse.
Designed for those hoping to progress to senior nursing roles, this course combines healthcare modules with a grounding in management and leadership. Not only will you improve the care you offer to your patients, you will also improve your ability to manage sensitive situations in different healthcare contexts – and to improve your management skills for the benefit of your position, organisation or region. A key part of the course will include producing a professional practice portfolio which will provide proof of your autonomy and your ability to develop your skills through reflective practice.
Our modules have been designed to be relevant globally, regardless of country or context, and you can choose from a range of optional modules to enhance your knowledge in certain areas of theoretical practice, such as:
Towards the end of your course you will have the opportunity to produce a piece of original research in the form of a dissertation on an issue within nursing which you find interesting. You will investigate, analyse and report on your results effectively and ethically.
Students will have access to your study materials 24/7, including:
Rather than fretting about exams, you will be assessed exclusively through assignments. This can be by engaging in discussion forums throughout your modules, completing reflective journal entries, or by submitting longer written pieces.
We are committed to providing frequent and transparent feedback through the following ways:
Our MSc Nursing will help you begin your progression from wholly clinical roles to middle and senior management positions within nursing. Potential job titles may include: Ward Manager, Charge Nurse, Nurse Manager, Senior Staff Nurse or Nursing Officer.
