Key Features

Recognising the changing context of healthcare and the profile of nurses needed, the Nursing Studies Adult (Pre-Registration) programme from Glasgow Caledonian University aims to equip graduate student nurses with advanced critical thinking skills, as well as practical skills and competencies to deliver compassionate, competent, person-centred, effective, safe and high quality health care.

MSc graduates will be expected make a significant contribution to ‘improving lives’ at an individual, community and global level. While working in partnership with health and social care professionals to meet the needs of patients, clients and service users, they will also contribute to public health outcomes through education and health improvement interventions.

The programme benefits from a strong emphasis on interprofessional education whereby students are able to learn with and from other health professionals.

The MSc also offers a unique opportunity for graduates to progress academically to Masters level while gaining registration as an adult nurse.

Graduate opportunities include employment in a diverse range of healthcare settings within the United Kingdom and internationally.
