Master of Nursing - Entry to Practice

The Master of Nursing – Entry to Practice provides a pathway to a nursing career for applicants with a bachelor degree in any area other than nursing. Students are awarded the equivalent of one year of advanced standing (credit) and complete the course in two years instead of three. The masters qualification positions you as a future leader in healthcare, preparing you to navigate complex health care challenges, and equipping you with clinical skills, research expertise and the capabilities to lead service provision .

Our course content reflects emerging trends in healthcare and nursing practice that have been identified through consultation with industry partners, discipline experts and research literature.

The masters embed a bioscience unit within the first semester, grounding students in essential knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. This unit removes the need to study bioscience as a prerequisite for course entry and ensures the quality of learning in this area as a foundation for nursing practice based learning. Subsequent studies will also build your knowledge in pathophysiology and will introduce you to professional nursing practice and contemporary healthcare service.
