The Nursing program provides a rich environment for postgraduate students with staff from a range of professional and disciplinary backgrounds including Stroke management, Wound management, Peri-operative care, Oncology, Obstetric & Gynecology, Neurology, Continence, Psychiatry, Cardiac Rehabilitation, and Neonatology & etc. that is relevant to the needs of healthcare professionals and nurses' career progression.
The master's by research degree equips students with a critical application of specialist knowledge and enables the development of advanced skills in carrying out sustainable and independent research.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) by research degree offers students an opportunity to undertake a focused and critical consideration and to make informed judgements on complex issues of a particular topic with the aim of contributing to the development of knowledge in that field as well as embracing an innovative approach to undertaking and solving problems.
We aims to prepare scholars who will discover and extend scientific knowledge that advances the science and practice of nursing with the purposes to improve the quality of services and outcomes for patients and their families through studies concerned with individual clinical needs, how knowledge is translated into practice, service delivery, organization and the wider social and policy context of care.
The program is especially interested in receiving applications from students across the globe and accepts applications throughout the year.
