We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Geriatric Nursing develop skills in assessing, monitoring and administering healthcare to elderly patients across a range of clinical and healthcare settings. This subject can be studied via a PGDip or a PGCert as well as an MSc.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Gerontological Nursing, Ageing Studies and Later Life Studies. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Courses in Gerontological Nursing usually take an interdisciplinary approach to training, building your expertise across a variety of care settings.
This could include specialising in clinical care, where you’ll get experience of working on hospital wards, administering treatment to elderly patients. You may specialise in advising on areas such as cancer, diabetes, dementia or respiratory disease.
Alternatively, you may opt to train in family or community nursing, offering care and assistance to patients outside of the traditional hospital setting. This could include undertaking home visits, helping at nursing homes, or working within community centres.
Geriatric nurses may also be employed within other areas of healthcare, such as rehabilitation centres. Other careers may include policy-making on behalf of charities and regulatory authorities, or public administration.
