Ready to take on more responsibility in your nursing role? Develop your critical thinking, expand your knowledge of evidence-based practice and become more confident in carrying out research in a clinical setting.

As a nurse you’re always developing your clinical practice. But as someone who’s leading change, you need to support this with high-quality research and the latest thinking.

On this programme you’ll learn how to support your role with clinical research. Our expert academics will guide you as you develop a research question. You’ll work independently on your project, aiming to make a difference to patients and other nurses.

The course information sheet is a printable version of the information on this web page, which you can download here.

Key benefits

  • We’re the number one nursing faculty in the UK and 2nd in the world (2019 QS World University Subject Rankings)
  • You’ll learn from internationally renowned clinicians and academics who have experience in a range of health and social care environments
  • You’ll develop the skills you need to take your career to the next level
  • Attend extracurricular seminars and lectures by leading healthcare experts from around the world

Description

To join this course you need a Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing undertaken with registration as an Adult, Children’s or Mental Health nurse. You’ll study part-time while continuing to work in your clinical role.

The dissertation is the only module on this course. It is an opportunity to carry out research that’s directly related to the clinical work you do or a wider service provision you’re involved with.

You can develop your own research question, or your tutor can help you decide on a suitable project.

Teaching

You only need to attend one compulsory taught session at the beginning of your course. There are optional teaching days throughout the year and you will organise your one-to-one sessions with your supervisor to suit you.

Course format and assessment

You will be assessed solely on your dissertation. There are four options for this project: an analysis of an area of healthcare provision, an empirical study, a systematic review, or a clinically focused project.

Career prospects

A completed MSc will indicate to actual and potential employers that you have the abilities and characteristics required of nurses working in more advanced positions. As such, some graduates move on to more senior nursing roles, while others pursue a clinical-academic career.
