Course summary

Programme description

This innovative programme offers advanced study for nurses working within a global context to enhance practice at the local level.

You can either choose a specific pathway: leadership, clinical research* or education, or follow a flexible generic programme with the opportunity to study a range of relevant courses from across the School of Health in Social Science and the wider University.

Nursing, health and social care research underpins the whole programme.

You will begin the MSc at the same entry point as all other students, but depending on the pathway you would like to undertake, have the opportunity to exit with a range of different degree titles: MSc Advanced Nursing; MSc Advanced Nursing (leadership); MSc Advanced Nursing (education); MSc Advanced Nursing (clinical research)

Who is this programme for?

The programme is suitable if you are a nurse registered in any branch of the profession to practice in your own country and you want to critically examine the ways that evidence-based research, theory and knowledge can advance nursing in the global context.

The degree also provides an excellent foundation for postgraduate research e.g. a doctoral degree, or to advance their professional career.
