Master of Nursing,
Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing
Our postgraduate courses will enhance the students’ professional career development, preparing them for advanced clinical practice with individuals, families, groups and communities. Nursing theory and research, as well as professional role development, are integral to this course which focuses on the development of the multiple roles of the clinical expert.
Students will complete a specialist stream in child and adolescent health nursing, domiciliary nursing or general nursing. All streams focus on the development of leadership, critical thinking and clinical decision making. All streams also incorporate an individual health project which students will complete, during the master component of the course, under the guidance of one of Curtin’s experienced staff.
Fundamental to this course is the development of leadership, critical thinking and clinical decision making capacity, preparing health professionals for a leadership role at an executive level. The Domiciliary Nursing stream prepares registered nurses for a leadership role in domiciliary nursing and focuses on professional accountability and the development of ompetency at an advanced level in assessment and clinical judgement skills.
