Designed for registered nurses, the Master of Emergency Nursing aims to assist nurses currently working in the emergency environment. Develop the specialist knowledge and skills to work closely with patients and their families who are confronted with trauma, accidents or acute and unexpected illnesses as you become a clinical leader.
Emergency nursing is an exciting specialty that requires the application of advanced knowledge to a challenging and diverse group of patients who are experiencing acute and sometimes life-threatening conditions. As an emergency nursing student, you will develop the knowledge and skills to assist emergency presentations, support the patient and family at a time of great vulnerability, and assist them with their journey either to hospital admission or safe discharge home.
During this one and a half year degree, you will learn from leading researchers in the field of emergency nursing care as you build upon your individual clinical experience. You will learn to anticipate and prioritise patient care, provide accurate assessment, intervention and effective ongoing management, often in a busy, autonomous and stressful environment. A work-based project or research thesis will comprise the capstone experience of this degree, providing the opportunity for you to apply your expertise as you explore a particular area of your interest.
Upon graduation, you will have the specialist knowledge and skills to provide high quality patient care as a leader in emergency nursing treatment. Completion of this degree can also be a pathway into the Master of Nursing (Nurse Practitioner).
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.
