Course summary

Course Overview

If you have already completed the PGDip Nursing (pre-qualifying nursing) and are eager to learn research skills that can be applied in clinical settings, then this course is for you

Our MSc Nursing top-up course allows you to investigate a topic important to you and your work place. We will give you the support you need to complete your dissertation while you work in the field. You will cover the whole research process, from ethics approval to writing your final report, with the guidance of an allocated supervisor.

The project you will complete will be one of the following:

  • an independent piece of research
  • a work-based project
  • systematic literature review
  • audit or service development
