Master of Advanced Nursing Practice
This degree is designed to prepare students for advanced practice in a chosen specialty area. It is intended to meet the ongoing professional needs of nurses working in, or planning to move into, roles as clinical nurse specialists, clinical nurse consultants, clinical educators or clinical nurse managers.
The Master of Advanced Nursing Practice offers an educational pathway for nurses in clinical specialties who wish to advance their awareness and further develop their knowledge in a chosen area of practice. As postgraduate studies in the School of Nursing Sciences follow an ‘additive’ model, this Masters course allows progression from the current Certificates and Diplomas offered in nursing specialties.
A person may enroll for the Master of Advanced Nursing Practice if that person is registered as a nurse in Queensland or elsewhere in Australia and has: * completed 12 months of clinical experience as a registered nurse; * qualified for a Bachelor degree at this or another University in a health related field at a standard considered appropriate by the Head of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition; or * qualifications recognised by the Head of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Molecular Sciences as equivalent to Requirement 2.2; or * submitted as an exceptional case such evidence of professional attainments including professional experience in nursing as meets with the approval of the faculty on the recommendation of the Head of the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition.
