Monash University

Course details

CRICOS course code: 068373J

Level of study: Postgraduate

Summary

If you’ve completed an Australian bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in a field other than nursing from a recognised university, the Master of Nursing Practice will help you become a highly skilled healthcare professional, preparing you for a career in this rewarding and well-respected profession.

The program builds on your prior knowledge and skills, allowing you to develop professional nursing practice through engagement with expert clinical nurses, contemporary nursing theory and hands-on experience.

Nurses are an integral part of any health system and the Master of Nursing Practice at Monash will prepare you for work in healthcare institutions both in Australia and internationally. Upon graduation you will have the knowledge and skills required to become a registered nurse. You can choose to work in a number of specialty areas – such as acute care, paediatrics and medical-surgical nursing.

The intensive two-year full time program is an entry-to-practice degree for graduates with non-nursing backgrounds. The program is an effective combination of theory and practice. For part of your study, half a study week is spent in the classroom and the other half in clinical practice, allowing you to apply new knowledge quickly.
