Nursing (post-registration)

Would you like the opportunity to further explore nursing practice and healthcare, whilst developing skills and knowledge in research methods and service improvement? The MSc Nursing course will allow you to examine contemporary nursing issues from a clinical perspective. Available to nurses who hold a registration in the UK or another country, this course offers an exciting mix of theory and practical application through the use of enquiry-based learning and workshops where a range of table top exercises and simulation will be utilised to develop your practical skills and knowledge. Two course options are available: an intensive 12-month programme beginning in September or a 20-month course that commences in January with a break between June and August to provide the opportunity for you to undertake a placement or study abroad should you wish. Throughout the duration of your course you will have access to our leading facilities and dedicated Clinical Skills Centre.
