Why study Master of Nursing Practice at Monash Nursing School?
If you’re not happy with the direction your career has taken, here’s your chance to explore alternative options for a satisfying, fulfilling and respected profession.
Monash nursing graduates are among the most sought after in the world because of our teaching quality and access to hands on learning in major teaching hospitals. This intensive program gives graduates with non-nursing degrees the opportunity to switch careers and reap the rewards of becoming a highly skilled carer.
The chance it offers to rethink careers is changing the face of nursing, with many more men represented in the course than in nursing generally, where only about 10 per cent of nurses are male.
The Master of Nursing Practice is an effective blend of theory and practice, with about half your study week spent in class and the other half in clinical practice, allowing you to apply and reinforce new knowledge quickly.
And with Monash University‘s links to leading research centres and teaching hospitals across metropolitan and regional Victoria, you’ll have access to great facilities and learn from some of the most experienced and capable medical practitioners and researchers in the country.
Monash also leads the way in teaching health educators to teach more effectively and in the use of simulated learning—so skilled instructors help you practise new techniques on dummies before people.
The program is held at the Clayton campus, and is a full-time intensive 18-month course. It offers a professional nursing qualification for individuals who have gained a non-nursing undergraduate degree.
