Nurses are an integral part of society. They are problem-solvers and pillars of strength. Through scholarship and leadership, nurses can challenge, reform, improve and enrich healthcare now and into the future. 

This advanced degree is suited to nurses currently practising in medical, surgical and high acuity areas who want to pursue leadership or research roles.
