We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Nursing study the assessment, management and treatment of patients within a medical, healthcare or clinical context. Postgraduate Nursing courses are usually MScs, but the PGDip is a popular alternative.
Related subjects include Community Nursing, Adult Nursing and Nursing Studies. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery or Social Care.
Nursing has a long and significant history, with notable individuals such as Florence Nightingale and Linda Richards implementing modern nursing practices. With this in mind, you’ll be trained to deliver a high standard of care within a range of contexts.
Courses in this field are vocational in nature, with hospital and community placements a key component on most programmes. You may wish to specialise in a particular area of the field, such as managing sexual health, providing social care or exploring avenues in Emergency Nursing, Dental Nursing and Midwifery.
Nurses administer healthcare within a broad variety of settings for individuals, families and communities to improve quality of life. Their responsibilities range from supporting doctors and physicians on hospital wards, prescribing medications during clinics, and offering care within community centres and education institutions.
