Find out more about the TEF.

Our four year dual field programme offers the opportunity for students to be recognised in two of the three fields of nursing we offer while achieving an Undergraduate Master’s degree. As well as preparing students for a clinical role, in a range of healthcare settings nationally or internationally, the programme is an excellent choice for those considering a career in research and nurse education, that is to say, it is a challenging option for those looking for a fast tracked career.
The MNurs programme is integrated with the BSc (Hons) Nursing programme hence students will follow a course of study that:

• Ignites your passion for life-long learning with our evidence-informed modules, on a programme designed to meet a diverse range of nursing career pathways.
• Provides nursing practice in a variety of clinical settings, whilst learning collaboratively within dynamic healthcare teams.
• Enhances and develops your nursing skills in the safe environment of the clinical skills simulation ward, under the supervision of nurse lecturers and clinical demonstrators.

In addition a key feature of the MNurs programme will be the dedicated Master’s level seminar and tutorial support time that students will experience which is built around critical reflexivity (thinking deeply about the impact of our assumptions, values, and actions on others). The programme cumulates in a 40 credit systematic review module that prepares students to perform as a capable and autonomous practitioner, fit for registration in two fields of nursing practice.
