The Master of Nursing Science (MNSc) is a professional masters degree that is exceptional preparation for your nursing career. It is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (formerly Nurses Board of Victoria). The MNSc recognises the nature of contemporary health care delivery in light of the impact of rapidly changing medical and information technologies, consumer demand and government economic and health policies. It offers graduates a higher level degree with enhanced learning outcomes while meeting the requirements for nursing registration.

Learning and teaching

We have developed the MNSc around four interrelated themes:

  1. Approaches to learning and teaching
  2. Research-based practice
  3. Clinical skill acquisition
  4. Contextualised, integrated health care delivery

Our curriculum emphasises significant contemporary health problems identified as National Health Priority Areas: cardiovascular health, cancer control, injury prevention and control, mental health, diabetes mellitus, and asthma.

We take a research-oriented approach to practice. This approach encourages systematic development of clinical skills using evidence-based learning, an understanding of the close links between theory and practice, and the ability to undertake self-directed life-long learning.

Our teaching is based on up-to-date research which allows you to apply the most relevant theory to your practice to ensure best practice and best patient outcomes. In the final semester, following your theoretical and clinical preparation, you will undertake a specialist elective subject in an area of interest to you and a capstone practice subject to consolidate your theoretical and practical knowledge.

Benefits

  • A masters degree in nursing is a portable qualification, whether you want to work locally, nationally or internationally.
  • The curriculum includes a greater ratio of clinical hours to theory than other entry-to-practice nursing degrees. This means that you will graduate with plenty of hands-on practice to prepare you for employment.
  • We offer the only integrated curriculum where you learn clinical skills and theory concurrently. Clinical and bioscience topics are coordinated to enhance your understanding of theory in practice. Students will participate in 6 to 8 weeks of intensive teaching each semester, followed by three or four weeks of professional experience placement with partner hospitals.
  • Our clinical placements are in the largest major metropolitan teaching hospitals ensuring best clinical practice opportunities and research collaborations.
  • We have state of the art clinical skills laboratories with up-to-date medical mannequins and equipment, and dedicated laboratory staff to guide your practical skill development. The clinical skills labs are used for classes and you can book them for self-directed learning.
  • Specific skill development in clinical research ensures you are confident in utilising current research to inform your practice and as preparation for research studies.
  • Our curriculum has a strong emphasis on contemporary health care and clinical governance, and prepares you for practice in a modern and complex nursing environment where nurses continue to take leadership roles.
  • You will undertake a specialist elective subject in the final semester, allowing you to further develop your areas of interest.
  • To consolidate your nursing practice you will undertake a capstone subject in the final semester. This will enable you to apply your knowledge and seek innovative solutions to real clinical problems.
  • The University offers excellent on-campus student facilities and a range of student services and opportunities. We are part of the most research-intensive medical faculty in Australia.
  • You will be part of a diverse and talented population of students at entry-to-practice, advanced practice and research levels. We employ internationally recognised nurse researchers with extensive affiliations with renowned research institutes and hospitals. As a nursing student you will have access to the best teachers and researchers with the most up to date practice knowledge.

At the completion of the Master of Nursing Science graduates are expected to:

  • meet the competencies identified by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council as necessary for practice as a registered nurse;
  • demonstrate a well developed understanding of health from global, population, community, family and individual perspectives;
  • integrate knowledge from a range of disciplines that contribute to health and disease management in the provision of nursing to people experiencing alterations in their health;
  • perform nursing assessment and intervention within legal and ethical parameters and demonstrating accountability for their own practice;
  • work effectively as a member of the multidisciplinary team;
  • demonstrate the ability to critically appraise research evidence relevant to common health problems and to translate this evidence into the development of nursing interventions to improve patient outcomes;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the Australian health care system in terms of policy and the organizational context of health service delivery;
  • practice effectively in health promotion and health education roles;
  • demonstrate the ability to identify knowledge gaps in the delivery of nursing care and to utilize research skills to address current gaps in practice in collaboration with researchers in nursing and allied disciplines.
