Course Summary

This exciting programme offers nurses working in a range of clinical environments and geographical contexts opportunities to develop personally and professionally. The programme has been designed to meet the needs of both UK based and international nurses and can be studied at Certificate, Diploma and Master's level depending on your needs. The programme is invaluable for all nurses who want to develop excellence and share good practice. Our MSc portfolio is designed to support students in achieving their career aspirations beyond their initial roles. While almost all of our students are already in professional roles, students who have completed our masters programmes in the past have gone on into management and other promoted posts as well as specialist roles such as hospital at night and clinical governance leads. Our aim is to help students become the leaders and experts of the future in health and social care, to be adaptable, confident and challenging in their approach, and to become the change agents in their professions. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip in this course.
