Northumbria University has an established reputation for excellence and innovation in nursing education. We are working closely with our NHS partners to deliver a pre-registration Nursing Science Masters that embodies the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s ‘Future Nurse’ standards, to equip you to lead your profession. 

This two-year Masters will allow graduates from any undergraduate subject to build on their experience in a caring role, and graduate with NMC Registration. Studying within the requirements of the new NMC standards means that you will be prepared for rapid career progression, especially when combined with the high-level attributes that you will acquire as a Northumbria postgraduate.

You will study partially at our Coach Lane Campus, and partially on placement, with both strands running alongside each other to give you an integrated approach to theory and practice. You will study within the standard university semester system, allowing time during the Easter and summer breaks for additional projects and internships – or simply a well-earned rest.

This programme will equip you to be curious, creative, and collaborative in your care. It will allow your compassion to thrive within an evidence-based approach. And it will enable you to make a genuine impact on the health and wellbeing of your clients and patients.  

If you're looking for something else in nursing then take a look at our wide range of NHS Funded Nursing Courses and, our undergraduate BSc courses include Nursing Science BSc (Hons) Degree and Nursing Science Registered Adult Nurse BSc (Hons),
