Master of Nursing (Coursework)

School of Nursing & Midwifery, Fremantle Campus

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 which can be completed over two semesters. You will choose an area of research which is 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. To be eligible you must have already completed a Graduate Certificate in Nursing or Graduate Diploma of Nursing at The University of Notre Dame Australia (Fremantle campus). 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 part of this degree, you will be allocated a research supervisor who will help you choose a relevant research subject and oversee the completion of the program.
