Course content

With the NHS Constitution at its core, our MSc Nursing programme will offer you the excitement and challenge of achieving your very best and will provide you with the rigorous training you need to become a dynamic nurse.

Our Master’s course has been designed for students who already have an undergraduate degree and who demonstrate the personal attributes and commitment needed to pursue a career caring for others. Your time with us will help you develop into a nurse who’s not only committed, but who is also able to deliver the highest quality of person-centred care.

Informed by the four pillars of Advanced Practice, you will be exposed to theoretical and practice-based learning addressing themes of Clinical Practice, Research, Education and Leadership, ensuring you are equipped to pursue a variety of exciting career opportunities at the point of qualification.

The course entails learning in a university setting, independent online learning, self-directed study, simulated practice and placements in a variety of health and social care settings. It will develop your high standards of care and clinical nursing skills, as well as your education, leadership and research skills, enabling you to excel in the way you work with service users, their families and their carers – and maximising your contribution to the multidisciplinary healthcare team.

Throughout the course, you’ll undertake professionally supervised placements in a wide variety of care settings. Working closely with service users, placements provide a fantastic opportunity to apply and develop your knowledge and skills in a clinical environment. Placements will also enable you to appreciate the importance of research, education and leadership in providing quality care.
