Content

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

Students will all begin the MSc at the same entry point, but depending on the pathway they 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); or, MSc Advanced Nursing (clinical research).

*The clinical research pathway is only available for students who are registered with the Nursing Midwifery Council in the UK to practice in a clinical setting.
