Suitable for registered nurses from all areas of practice, our MSc Nursing will equip you with the knowledge, skills, personal, professional and inter-professional insights needed to confront, challenge and shape the future of your nursing practice.
One of the greatest challenges facing nursing today is to build on nursing as a caring profession whilst incorporating new technologies, ideas and approaches to healthcare.

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus, with some online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
