MSc in Nursing

The philosophy of the MSc in Nursing programme is based on the belief that nursing is an interactive, caring process, and that nurses must constantly consolidate their practice with education. In so doing, the nurse as an individual and a member of the healthcare team enhances their professionalism through a greater appreciation of patient-centric care.

The achievement of professional scholarship is not only an academic exercise, but also one of integrating skills, knowledge, competence and professionalism, and appreciation of research and its importance to clinical practice. It is these principles that underpin the curriculum in MSc in Nursing, and the programme is structured in such a way as to facilitate nurses to pursue their study whilst working full-time in clinical practice.
