What will I learn?

Thrive in complex health environments. The Master of Nursing (Graduate entry) builds on your previous undergraduate education, preparing you for work in local, national and international healthcare settings. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of how to work with other health professionals to provide the highest quality person-centred care.

Delivered as two distinct yet comparable cohorts, this program can be studied at either the University's Mallett Street campus in Camperdown or at the Westmead health precinct, Westmead.

Throughout this two-year degree, you will learn from leading experts through hands-on learning as you develop a strong theoretical understanding of health and illness, and how care is provided and experienced. As part of your degree, you will complete over 800 clinical placement hours in varied settings including emergency departments, intensive care units, pediatric units, oncology units, mental health facilities and community health centres. Beyond clinical care, you will also study human biology, pharmacology, research and evidence-based practice, social contexts of health and illness, illness experiences, healthcare systems, leadership in healthcare and other professional topics, including legal and ethical issues in healthcare.
