  • Why study this degree?

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

    Our Master of Nursing (Leadership and Management) can be completed over two semesters of part-time study.

    The Master of Nursing is designed to help you as Registered Nurse by further developing your knowledge and improving your skills so that you can operate at an advanced level.
