If you've completed an Australian bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in a field other than nursing from a recognised university, the Master of Nursing Practice will help you become a highly skilled healthcare professional, preparing you for a career in this rewarding and well-respected profession.
The program builds on your prior knowledge and skills, allowing you to develop professional nursing practice through engagement with expert clinical nurses, contemporary nursing theory and hands-on experience.
Nurses are an integral part of any health system and the Master of Nursing Practice at Monash will prepare you for work in healthcare institutions both in Australia and internationally. Upon graduation you will have the knowledge and skills required to become a registered nurse. You can choose to work in a number of specialty areas - such as acute care, paediatrics and medical-surgical nursing.
Successful completion of the course will lead to eligibility for registration as a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) subject to the graduate also meeting the current NMBA Registration standard: English language skills. Registration with the NMBA is a legal requirement for practising as a registered nurse in Australia.
