A natural progression from your BSc, the Masters Advanced Nursing builds on your skills and specialist knowledge, giving you a deeper understanding and leading to wider career opportunities.
With nursing in England becoming an all-graduate profession, further study will help you stay ahead. Higher qualifications demonstrate your ambition and aptitude for learning, and many of our MSc students and graduates find they achieve promotion during or soon after their course. In fact, in clinical practice, applicants for senior and advanced nursing posts are increasingly expected to possess, or be working towards, masters-level qualifications. A masters degree is also the entry qualification for a career in teaching.
Taking an Advanced Nursing course is a real investment in your career. The programme’s educational framework has been carefully designed to improve healthcare practice and, ultimately, patient care. Therefore your assignments will be firmly grounded in the realities you face in the workplace, developing skills and knowledge that will lead to practical benefits for you and your team.
You will join students from diverse clinical backgrounds, including acute and community care settings. Many come from the UK, but also Europe and even further afield; all share a common enthusiasm and commitment to advancing their careers – and the profession. Learning from each other, as much as from experienced teachers, you will develop new friendships that will last long after the course.
Alongside the clear career benefits this qualification brings, this challenging course is also hugely rewarding on a personal level and many of our students comment on the enormous sense of satisfaction and achievement in gaining an award at this level.
We also offer a Postgraduate Diploma Advanced Nursing, which has the same taught modules but does not include a dissertation.
