The MA Nursing programme provides students with the opportunity to engage in the academic study of nursing, identifying and understanding key arguments in the thematic study of nursing in contemporary society in local, national and global contexts.
Completion of this programme will enable students to link theoretical analysis with empirical enquiry in considering issues related to nursing, while nurturing intellectual and creative potential. Students are empowered to become rigorous, critical and analytical in their thinking about the interplay between nursing and healthcare, policy, and societal factors. This master’s level programme encourages a high degree of initiative, independent judgement, self-motivation and critical self-awareness to develop students' abilities in research, data selection, organisation, evaluation and analysis so this can be fully utilised in the application of their skills within the field of their choice.
