Overview

This course builds on the knowledge and experience you have already gained from your nursing undergraduate degree. Nursing is increasingly a profession where higher qualifications are required for promotion, so a master's qualification can help you to take on roles such as nurse team manager and nurse consultant.
This will allow you to continue your professional development and make a bigger contribution to people’s health and well-being.

This course mixes taught elements with independent research and self-directed study. There is the flexibility to pursue personal interests in considerable depth, with guidance and inspiration from our supportive tutors.

We use a wide variety of teaching and learning methods which include lectures, seminars, case studies, presentations, group work, directed study and tutorials. Compared to an undergraduate course, you will find that this master requires a higher level of independent working. Assessment methods include essays, reports, case studies, exams and presentations.
