Course content

The MSc Advanced Nursing is an innovative and new programme that offers advanced study for nurses working within a global context to enhance practice at the local level. The programme is designed with career prospects in mind, so students have the flexibility to shape their programme depending on whether they would like to develop their careers further in clinical practice, education, research or leadership. The programme draws on current theory, practice, research and innovation in nursing, health and social care practice to develop a critical understanding of contemporary health care. The programme will equip nurses to develop advanced specialist knowledge and skills and to enhance skills to be a professional and critically reflective practitioner able to provide evidence-based practice in both a local and international context.
