A Master of Science is a type of advanced educational option within the field of science. This master’s degree is awarded to students after an average of three years of study. A graduate degree can help students prepare for participation in a doctoral program.

What is an MSc in Nursing? This type of graduate degree is designed to give students a high-level education in advanced nursing practices, including medical assessment, diagnosis, treatment and care. A nursing program at this level may include more intensive study of research methods, prescribing and medicine management. Many programs incorporate field work and internship opportunities as well as traditional lecture courses.

Students in the field of nursing often gain a multitude of skills that go beyond medical care. They tend to be extremely diligent workers with the ability to make quick and important decisions. Many nursing students also develop strong interpersonal and written communication skills in the course of study.

Earning a master’s degree may be partially or completely paid for through the acquisition of financial aid, scholarship funds or work-study programs. The cost of earning an MSc can vary from school to school, so it is important for students to research and contact potential schools for tuition information.

After earning a graduate degree, nursing graduates can often expand the number and type of careers available to choose from. While many graduates with an undergraduate degree take entry-level positions, individuals with a master’s degree may consider more specialized and advanced nursing careers. Students can go on to become anesthesiologists, midwives, informatics nurses and psychiatric nurse practitioners.

Students around the globe can earn a master’s degree from nearly any country or through online coursework. Some universities offer a wide selection of degree programs, while others specialize in certain subjects.
