MSc Nursing (Older Person)

MSc Nursing (Older Person)

Introduction

The overall aim of the Masters in Nursing (Older Person) programme is to provide registered nurses with the opportunity to develop and enhance nursing knowledge and skills in this area of practice. The programme is designed to facilitate learning in assessment and therapeutic nursing interventions for the older person.  The programme facilitates the development of knowledge through critical inquiry, skills, attributes and competencies in preparation for developing roles within nursing. Such roles may include specialist and advanced practice roles whereby nurses collaborate with other members of the multidisciplinary team and recognise their responsibility in contributing to and leading the nursing profession through clinical excellence. Successful completion of year one of the Masters 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 nursing practice posts.
