If you’ve completed a bachelor’s degree in a field other than nursing from a recognized university, the Master of Nursing Practice at Monash University 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.


The intensive two-year full-time program is an effective combination theory and practice. Half a study week is spent in the classroom and the other half in clinical practice, allowing you to apply new knowledge quickly.

Monash’s links to leading research centres and teaching hospitals across metropolitan and regional Victoria will give you access to outstanding facilities and allow you to learn from some of the most experienced and capable medical practitioners and researchers in the country.
