In response to the changing needs of educational provision in healthcare practice and stakeholder consultation, the School of Nursing and Human Sciences has developed a postgraduate educational framework for nurses and other healthcare practitioners.

The programme includes modules predominantly focused on practice embedded elements. It is anticipated that students will normally be working a minimum of 20hrs per week in an area related to their intended focus of study, e.g. recovery oriented practice, the management of long term illness, community/primary care, intellectual disability & concurrent mental health problems, care of the older person or care of the child and adolescent.

This programme will further develop your analytical skills, and provide an educational framework to deliver optimum care to individuals, families and communities, as well as improving the quality of healthcare practice in the Irish healthcare system.

Programme

To initiate and lead practice developments in your area.

To demonstrate clinically effective practice through critical engagement.

To demonstrate advanced research skills, which enable you to appraise research design and effective practice, and develop the requisite research knowledge and skills to implement best practice.

To engage in effective intra and inter professional working with healthcare colleagues.

To advance practice in your profession and designated area through effective leadership and innovation.

To demonstrate a critical engagement with decision-making frameworks and processes in health and social care contexts.

For those continuing to complete the MSc. component it is expected that you will be able to plan, undertake and disseminate an original piece of healthcare practice research upon completion.

General Entry Requirements

Direct entry to the programme will be considered for candidates who hold a primary degree, with a minimum of second-class honours, grade two, in a relevant discipline. Where a prospective student has not attained the required academic level prior to their application, and in keeping with the University policy on equality of access and opportunity, additional opportunities for entry to the programme will be available. These are offered through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Candidates will normally be expected to be working in the area of practice which they hope to study over the course of the programme. The programme will incorporate a separate external practice placement
