Course content

Join a specialist programme for qualified nurses that will build on your existing nursing expertise. We’ll enhance your leadership, research and communication skills and prepare you for advanced and innovative practice as a specialist nurse, nurse manager, nurse educator or nurse researcher.

The MSc Nursing immerses qualified nurses in key issues and ideas relating to communication, leadership, education and research.

Nurturing innovative professional practice, the programme will address these four cornerstones of professional nursing, advancing knowledge and enhancing skills in your specialist field.

The UK National Health Service will be compared and contrasted with service organisation and delivery in other countries, providing a global perspective on healthcare. You’ll also receive training in leadership and management skills for advanced clinical practitioners and receive expert insights into how to manage complex care needs.

Optional modules enable you to focus on specific aspects of patient care of professional interest. You can specialise in areas ranging from managing critically ill patients to assessing risk, promoting mental health and wellbeing, and managing the emotional impact of diagnosis.

The programme is led by a small team of experience and dedicated nursing staff who form part of a larger team of healthcare experts in the School of Health Sciences. Our interactive, small-group teaching sessions are designed to enhance your transferable skills, from critical thinking and problem-solving, to communication, leadership and teamwork.
