Our new and innovative Masters of Nursing programme, will supply you with the knowledge, skills and competencies required to become a registered nurse in adult, mental health or children’s nursing practice. Your development as a future leader in nursing will be enhanced through the development of clinical, research, leadership and quality improvement which are taken at Masters level. The School of Nursing has an active research programme and students undertaking the Master of Nursing will be aligned with one of our themes for the final year of the programme. You will be able to develop, manage, evaluate and disseminate the findings of a clinical research or improvement project in conjunction with the clinical academic and nursing management team. You will have explored ideas for your future career pathway and have a plan for your career as a registered nurse. Your research preparation may help you to consider progression to PhD study. Upon successful completion of the course you will have a thorough grounding in the study and practice of nursing, including concepts of health derived from the study of the biological and social sciences, professional studies and communication skills, together with the professional disciplinary knowledge and understanding of your preferred field of practice of nursing (Adult, Mental Health or Child). You will have studied leadership and management at Masters level and will be able to lead quality patient care including the coaching and development of others. The programme is regulated by The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Students follow the University of Birmingham and NMC Code.
