We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Emergency Nursing equip postgraduates with the skills to assess, manage, treat and monitor the provision of care to patients in medical emergencies. Emergency nurses are often the first point of contact for anyone admitted to the emergency department of a hospital.
Related subjects include Emergency Care, Critical Care and Ambulatory Care. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Nursing or Medicine, and some courses ask that you already have some professional nursing experience.
Emergency nurses primarily offer treatment to people who require prompt medical attention to avoid long-term disability or death. This means you will be trained to handle a large variety of emergency situations, within a fast-paced working environment.
You’ll be equipped to deal with emergencies including heart attacks and strokes, gunshot wounds and car accidents, as well as acute alcohol / drug intoxication, and psychiatric and behavioural problems. Training usually includes a placement within an emergency department or critical care setting.
Emergency nurses are often employed by hospital emergency departments, but may also find work aboard medical transport such as helicopters and ambulances and in other urgent care areas.
