The Master of Nursing Practice will provide a professional nursing qualification for individuals who have gained an Australian bachelor's degree (or equivalent) from a recognised university. This program builds on prior knowledge and skills and facilitates the development of professional nursing practice through engagement with expert clinical nurses, contemporary nursing theory and evidence.

Nurses are in demand throughout the world because they are vital to the health and wellbeing of every country and person. As a nurse, you can have a variety of roles or work in a number of specialty areas – such as acute care, paediatrics and medical surgical.

On enrolment, a medical certificate specifying the student's current health and immunisation status is required.

Students will also be asked to obtain a National Police Certificate (annual requirement) and a Working With Children Check on enrolment in the program.

Overview

If you're not happy with the direction your career has taken, here's your chance to explore alternative options for a satisfying, fulfilling and respected profession.

Monash nursing graduates are among the most sought after in the world because of our teaching quality and access to hands on learning in major teaching hospitals.

This intensive program gives graduates with non-nursing degrees the opportunity to switch careers and reap the rewards of becoming a highly skilled carer.

The chance it offers to rethink careers is changing the face of nursing, with many more men represented in the course than in nursing generally, where only about 10 per cent of nurses are male.

Lee Horsley, one of the first students to enrol in this new degree, had been raising a young family and working 60-hours a week in his plant nursery before deciding to take his mother's advice and become a nurse as she had been.

"For the first time I feel that I am doing what I should be doing," he said at the time. On his first day, he discovered that half of his fellow students were men from a range of backgrounds, including engineering, law, teaching and IT.

He says nursing "absolutely benefits from a better gender balance".

The course is an effective blend of theory and practice, with about half your study week spent in class and the other half in clinical practice, allowing you to apply and reinforce new knowledge quickly.

And with Monash's links to leading research centres and teaching hospitals across metropolitan and regional Victoria, you'll have access to great facilities and learn from some of the most experienced and capable medical practitioners and researchers in the country.

Monash also leads the way in teaching health educators to teach more effectively and in the use of simulated learning - so skilled instructors help you practise new techniques on dummies before people.

You can study the course at our Clayton campus, but, because of its intensity, only on a full-time basis.

The Master of Nursing Practice is not a postgraduate degree for individuals who are already nurses and who wish to undertake study to advance their practice or who wish to pursue a research pathway.

Career opportunities

Successful completion of the Master of Nursing Practice demonstrates that a candidate has attained competence in delivering nursing care and is eligible to be registered as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

Professional recognition (Australian)

On completion of this degree, graduates will be eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
