Master of Nursing

The Master of Nursing at UNE has a strong emphasis on the development and application of evidence-based practice and scholarship in contemporary healthcare practice, education and research settings. This course prepares students for advanced nursing practice in modern and complex healthcare, and related environments, where nurses continue to make significant contributions and take leadership roles. Using a variety of learning strategies and flexible delivery options, the Master of Nursing enables students to align their study with their career goals by selecting a clinical, research or professional pathway. Specialisations are available in clinical management, clinical practice, learning and teaching in healthcare, mental health, rural health, or safety and quality in healthcare. Alternatively, the general program enables students to design their own program of study from the offerings within the course to address areas of specialty practice not currently offered as specialty streams or students can combine subjects for a broader focus. To consolidate students Master of Nursing studies students will undertake a capstone unit or a research project in the final teaching periods. This will enable students to apply their knowledge, investigate practice problems, or professional issues and seek innovative solutions to real concerns in healthcare. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: assess and address complex health and or professional issues from a range of approaches within an increasingly internationalised context of health care and professional practice; develop, implement and undertake new and innovative practices within legislative and professional boundaries; support the development of evidence-based nursing and health care interventions; initiate, manage and sustain changes which positively affect health outcomes for diverse populations; analyse contemporary social, political and professional influences on nursing practice and health care delivery; and contribute to the development of knowledge for practice and the profession through education, research and scholarship.
