Master of Nursing

JCU Online’s Master of Nursing is a comprehensive course that prepares Registered Nurses, who already have a Bachelor of Nursing, to maximise the potential of their nursing careers. Whether you want to understand and implement research, or pursue leadership or educational practice roles in a hospital environment, the Master of Nursing is for you.

Throughout the latter part of the course, students will have the opportunity to compile a professional portfolio based on subject content applied to an area of expertise, equipping them with
additional tools for career advancement.

These core skills were specifically incorporated to ensure all graduates leave the course ready to take on the challenges presented by a changing healthcare landscape. You’ll also be able to choose one of three majors: Leadership and Management, Education or Advanced Practice.

Students choosing the Leadership and Management major will acquire the skillset necessary for leading and managing teams, as well as developing skills in business-related areas such as finance and budgeting. Education majors will learn comprehensive and contemporary methods for facilitating effective adult learning. Advanced Practice students will further develop the skills needed to deliver advanced patient care.

The JCU Online’s Master of Nursing gives you the preparation you’ll need to shine at the next level in your career – advanced communication skills, data management skills, governance knowledge, informatics, and the ability to design and implement evidence into practice. We equip you with the knowledge, proficiency, competency and expertise to succeed in your chosen specialisation.
