Master of Nursing Practice (Graduate Entry)

The heart of healthcare

Using a primary health care framework, you will study the application of physical and behavioural sciences to nursing; inquiry and evidence-based practice principles and utilisation within nursing; nursing care of individuals, families and groups from diverse backgrounds across the lifespan.

The acquisition of nursing knowledge and skills occurs initially in campus-based simulated clinical practice settings and consolidation occurs as students undertake clinical placements in a variety of health care settings.

The Master of Nursing Practice (Graduate Entry) is offered as a two-year course commencing with an intensive, full-time unit of study in the Summer Session that supports student transition into two years of full-time study. Students will not be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Professional accreditation

Subject to Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) accreditation, students will be eligible for registration as a Nurse (Division 1) with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia on successful completion of the course. ANMAC is a partner board of the Australian Health Practitioners Registration Authority (AHPRA).
