Course summary

Nursing is a complex profession; you'll need scientific knowledge, deep ethical understanding, and a strong moral compass.

This Masters course draws on our world-leading research to create a unique nursing curriculum. You'll learn in an environment which values scholarship, social awareness, and research.

Through theoretical study, practical experience, and reflective discussion, you'll hone your skills in adult nursing. We'll encourage you to develop an intellectual curiosity that will support your development throughout your career.

As a student in the adult field of practice, you'll develop the knowledge and skills necessary to care for people in a wide variety of practice settings. These range from primary care and nursing in the community, to working within a hospital setting in acute and critical care placements, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. You will work closely with a multidisciplinary team delivering holistic, person-centred care.

You'll graduate ready to register as a highly skilled nurse, able to provide excellent care to adult patients. You'll be confident undertaking research and using evidence to develop nursing practice.
