MSc Nursing (Palliative Care) (FT)

MSc Nursing (Palliative Care) (FT)

Introduction

The overall aim of the Masters in Nursing in Palliative Care programme is to provide registered nurses involved in the care of patients with a life-limiting illness the opportunity to develop their previously acquired professional education and clinical practice skills. The programme focuses on the care and support of patients with palliative needs and their families. The evidence base for palliative care practice will be explored. Critical inquiry will be encouraged into all aspects of palliative care with due regard for the context of practice and the changing needs of palliative care patients and their families. In addition to core modules supporting the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, students will explore how a philosophy of palliative care can underpin their practice in areas such as communication, grief and loss, spirituality, sexuality and symptom management. Successful completion of the Masters in Nursing will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for clinical nurse specialist posts. The MSc award will provide students with the academic qualifications required to be considered eligible for advanced nursing practice posts.
