This programme builds on the knowledge, skills and experience that you have already gained from an undergraduate degree in nursing. Nursing is increasingly a profession where higher qualifications are required for promotion.

You will refine and practise skills and also enhance your ability to teach, mentor and manage other members of the health care team. The course also responds to changes in the public health system.
