Programme Details


This full time postgraduate programme will enable international registered nurses to advance their knowledge and understanding of current issues related to their field of practice. The programme acknowledges that the quality of healthcare delivery continues to evolve; thus educational programmes in nursing require dynamic strategies that address the needs of service users in any healthcare setting. This programme offers learners a focused framework that supports the transition from a first level degree to advanced levels of nursing practice and more importantly, it gives learners the opportunity to appraise their roles as leaders in healthcare practice. Learners are offered the opportunity to critically examine evidence and research related to their scope of practice. Learning is based around critical reflection of practice as well as interactive and proactive learning approaches. This programme enables learners to develop both academically and professionally, expanding their knowledge and skills in nursing, where they are expected to achieve a high degree of skill in critical evaluation.
