MSc Nursing (Dementia Care)

MSc Nursing (Dementia Care)

Introduction

The overall aim of the Master of Science in Nursing (Dementia Care) programme is to provide registered nurses with the opportunity to develop and enhance specialist level knowledge and skills in the area of person centred dementia care. This programme is designed to respond to the need for increased awareness, understanding and enhancement of services to foster an enriched model of living for persons with dementia. Concepts of quality, person centred care, safety and evidence based practice are central to the philosophy, design and overall delivery of the programme. A key goal of this programme is to prepare practitioners for the challenges of leading and delivering specialist/ advanced level person centred dementia practice across a variety of settings. To achieve this goal, programme content focusses on providing practitioners with the theoretical underpinnings, clinical exposure and competence for the development of knowledge and skills in areas of assessment and therapeutic interventions for persons with dementia. Successful completion of year one of the master's programme (Graduate Diploma award) will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for clinical nurse specialist posts. The MSc award on successful completion of year 2 will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for advanced practice posts
