Why study Master of Nursing?

This advanced, highly flexible course is designed to get ambitious registered nurses where they want to be - whether that's filling a senior role as a multi-skilled all-rounder, a specialist in a variety of clinical settings, a healthcare researcher, educator, manager or policy leader.

You can study by all coursework or combine coursework and a minor thesis. The all-coursework options may include a choice of a specialist or generic study pathways.

The specialist pathways cover the options in which our School of Nursing and Midwifery Berwick, Clayton and Peninsula campuses specialise including advanced medical surgical, paediatric, critical care, emergency, disaster and emergency management, aged care, palliative care, mental health, primary health care, refugee health and nursing education.

This wide choice reflects our links to major teaching hospitals and world-class medical research centres across metropolitan and regional Victoria and throughout Australia.

This course prepares suitably qualified registered nurses with leadership skills to plan, implement, coordinate and evaluate health care, as well as formulate policy for a diverse and multicultural society.

You will be well equipped to contribute to the health of individuals, families, communities and the development of the profession on completion of this Master of Nursing at Monash.
