New postgraduate programmes will be a boost for those involved in Adult Nursing and Children and Young People’s Nursing
Two new postgraduate nursing programmes have been introduced by the Faculty of Health & Social Care (FHSC) at Anglia Ruskin University to help underpin the work of the region’s highly skilled healthcare professionals.
The Masters of Science (MSc) course in Adult Nursing together with the MSc in Children and Young People’s Nursing will be delivered across the East of England to enhance academic ability and professional standing, to help advance the careers of individuals working within these specific nursing arenas.
All applicants should preferably hold a good first degree or equivalent in science or social care related subjects however students with a background in other academic disciplines will also be considered for the programmes.
Confirming the need for the new MSc in Adult Nursing, Patricia Turnbull from Anglia Ruskin University’s FHSC, said:
