Graduates from any discipline will be considered for this qualification.  Students will engage in clinically-focused, face-to-face and online, research-informed learning through the University of Otago, Christchurch, in partnership with healthcare providers in the South Island. Students will develop their knowledge and skills for practice through case-based scenarios, clinical simulation, extensive clinical experiences and research. On successful completion of the MNSc students will be eligible to apply for registration with the Nursing Council of New Zealand. This unique and innovative degree is the first two year pathway to nursing registration through a Master's qualification approved by the New Zealand Nursing Council.
