Master of Nursing (Coursework)

School of Nursing & Midwifery

Enrolling in the Master of Nursing program you can begin with the Graduate Certificate and Diploma nursing courses before embarking on your Masters year.

If you have already completed either a Graduate Certificate in Nursing or Graduate Diploma of Nursing, you may wish to enrol in this Master of Nursing program. You will choose an area of research relevant to your specialist nursing practice.

  • Why study this degree?

    If you are a Registered Nurse, a Master of Nursing is a useful career pathway if you want to formalise your qualifications or perhaps develop a specialist knowledge in a particular area of healthcare.

    Our Master of Nursing (Coursework) can be completed over two semesters of part-time study once you have completed the four Certificate and four Diploma courses. Because you will choose a thesis subject relevant to your specialist area of nursing practice, you should discuss your study program with your postgraduate coordinator beforehand.

    As with our other postgraduate programs, the Master of Nursing is aimed at practising Registered Nurses who wish to develop their knowledge and improve their skills so that they can operate at an advanced level. As a Master’s student, you will be allocated a research supervisor who will help you choose a relevant research subject and oversee the completion of the program.
