Master of Nursing
The postgraduate course in nursing at Avondale College of Higher Education is designed to provide you with the option to either develop nursing specialist qualifications in clinical teaching, clinical nursing, leadership, and management or to undertake a generic course with no particular specialization. These areas of study are designed to extend and deepen a registered nurse's knowledge, skills and appreciation of advanced practice through the in-depth study of contemporary health care issues, nursing research and evidence-based perspectives of practice, leadership and management approaches, health promotion, holistic assessment, therapeutic interventions, and evaluation.
The ability to function both autonomously and collaboratively as a member of a multidisciplinary health care team is an essential element in the course. Further, postgraduate students will also be expected to demonstrate accountability for safe practice from legal, ethical and professional perspectives.
