Nursing MSc (CID1083)




University of Sunderland

Nursing MSc

Course overview 

This Masters course builds on the knowledge, skills and experience you have already gained from an undergraduate degree in nursing. Nursing is increasingly a profession where higher qualifications are required for promotion, so a Masters qualification can help you take on roles like nurse team manager and nurse consultant.

This will allow you to continue your professional development and make a bigger contribution to people’s health and well-being.
