Course Description:
To qualify for the Master of Nursing, a student must complete 54 units with a grade of Pass or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study set out below.

Not all topics and streams are available in any given year.

Enrolment in NURS9615, NURS9613 and NURS9602 must be approved by the course coordinator and will depend upon the presentation of an acceptable research proposal and the availability of appropriate supervision. All students must pursue one pathway unless permission is granted by the Faculty Board, in which case the program of study must be approved by the course coordinator at enrolment each year. A student who fails the clinical component of any topic will receive a Fail (F) grade for the entire topic.

The award of a grade of Fail (F) in the same topic on more than one occasion or in 12 units or more, or failure to complete the course within four consecutive years may constitute prima facie evidence of unsatisfactory progress for the purpose of the University's Policy on Student Progress.

    * no topic may be attempted more than twice;
    * a student may not include a topic which repeats work previously undertaken;
    * the program must be completed full-time within three consecutive semesters or part-time within eight consecutive semesters.
