- Postgraduate Prospectus -
This MSc Nursing will drive you to improve the care you offer patients, as well as your ability to handle sensitive issues in different healthcare contexts. You will also develop management and leadership skills which not only benefit you professionally but also your organisation. At the end of your studies you will have the confidence and ability to take on more senior nursing responsibilities.
Who is this course for?
This degree is designed to develop your specialist knowledge and transferable skills to enable you to progress your nursing career.
You will learn and be assessed wholly online via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), so no need to travel to assessment centres. This means you can easily and flexibly fit your professional development ambitions around your personal life, and you won’t need to take a career break. Though you will study exclusively online, on successful completion of your MSc Nursing, you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex’s Colchester campus.
At University of Essex Online, we believe that everyone should be able to access education. That is why we offer two different entry routes onto our MSc Nursing, which take into account both academic and work-based experience.
Our courses are taught in English so to study with us you must have an IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 or equivalent. If you don’t hold an IELTS or equivalent qualification, you will be required to pass a free online English test to assess your proficiency.
This course will help you to progress from wholly clinical roles to middle and senior management positions within nursing. Potential job titles may include: Ward Manager, Charge Nurse, Nurse Manager, Senior Staff Nurse or Nursing Officer.
