We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Palliative Care Nursing teach postgraduates the skills to support and care for people with terminal or life-limiting conditions. It’s possible to study Palliative Care Nursing as a PGDip or PGCert as well as an MSc.
Related subjects include Oncology and Community Health Studies. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree such as Nursing, Medicine, or Social Care.
Palliative Care is a sensitive issue; it’s about people living with a terminal illness where recovery is no longer possible. It aims not only to treat or manage physical symptoms, but also to provide social support.
Training predominantly involves taking part in clinical practice through work placements, and conducting research on issues of palliative care and service development.
Depending on your interests, you may wish to specialise in areas such as Paediatric or Gerontological Palliative Care. Or, you might want to focus on providing care for specific medical issues, for example cancer.
District nursing is typical for palliative care nurses, but your career may also involve working directly on wards or within social housing and nursing homes.
