About

This Nursing MSc from University of Dundee is a flexible, practice focused award, tailored to meet your individual needs and interests

Overview

Designed to offer postgraduate education to nurses in a range of clinical environments and geographical settings, this Nursing MSc from University of Dundee is ideal for UK based and international nurses to develop personally and professionally.

You will develop your ways of thinking, helping you to become an independent learner who thinks creatively to solve problems using evidence-based approaches, including critical reflection, application of theory, and critical appraisal.

You'll learn about researching, appraising, and applying evidence and how these concepts can be used in your professional practice. This will help to develop your confidence to critically analyse the research process and to then use this to influence practice. 

The course is flexible and will allow you to tailor your own needs. You will study two core modules and two optional modules from a range of areas, such as:

  • the relationship between risk management and patient safety
  • the assessment, care, and management of acutely or critically ill adults
  • understanding of organisational culture and a range of leadership models and theories
  • the prevention, diagnosis, and management of long term conditions including acute presentations

This course is offered on a part-time basis and delivered through online distance learning. A small number of modules are also delivered partly face-to-face for locally based students.

Teaching

The course is mainly delivered online and will include:

  • online learning resources
  • discussion boards
  • web conferences

You will take four taught modules (two core, two optional) that will expand your thinking and expertise in current and clinically focused topics. After completing these modules you'll be allocated a supervisor and begin your dissertation.
