Thrive in complex health environments. The Master of Nursing (Graduate entry) builds on your previous undergraduate education, preparing you for work in local, national and international healthcare settings. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of how to work with other health professionals to provide the highest quality person-centred care.
Delivered as two distinct yet comparable cohorts, this program can be studied at either the University's Mallett Street campus in Camperdown or at the Westmead health precinct, Westmead.
Throughout this two-year degree, you will learn from leading experts through hands-on learning as you develop a strong theoretical understanding of health and illness, and how care is provided and experienced. As part of your degree, you will complete over 800 clinical placement hours in varied settings including emergency departments, intensive care units, paediatric units, oncology units, mental health facilities and community health centres. Beyond clinical care, you will also study human biology, pharmacology, research and evidence-based practice, social contexts of health and illness, illness experiences, healthcare systems, leadership in healthcare and other professional topics, including legal and ethical issues in healthcare.
Upon graduation, you will be eligible to apply for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia. Highly sought after by employers in NSW, our graduates work in a wide range of settings, from inner-city hospitals to rural and remote communities, in public health, government departments, non-government organisations, armed forces, tertiary education, in research and clinical trials, and in the pharmaceutical industry.
Important Information You will be able to select your preferred campus during the application process. Please choose carefully as multiple applications will not be accepted.
Applicants who are not successful in gaining an offer for the Westmead Health Precinct will be automatically considered for admission into the Master of Nursing Mallett Street campus program.
To assist students to make informed choices about their study, we have identified and set out the Inherent Requirements for coursework award courses in nursing. The University of Sydney welcomes and encourages applications from students with disabilities, and from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. Where there are physical, intellectual, cultural, religious or other factors that impact on a student's ability to meet the Inherent Requirements, the University will make reasonable adjustments to assist the student to meet the requirements. Please read the Inherent Requirements carefully as you consider your course choices.
