Stepping to the Forefront of Healthcare

Our MScN programme prepares practising nurses to take the next step in their career and to take on advanced nursing roles.

The programme is very flexible as it allows nurses to enrol as full-time, part-time or work-based students, studying alongside existing work commitments. ​

The curriculum for the programme is designed to have four different components: core courses, speciality tracks, thesis writing and practicum. At present, the School offers two speciality tracks including Education and Clinical Specialities. You can choose from either of these two speciality tracks. ​


At SONAM, we focus on producing leaders who are trusted to be the best in their field and are able to make an impact in the healthcare landscape. 

Our programmes are recognised for their internationally benchmarked quality, innovation and affordability. Our students learn in a blended learning environment with a combination of face-to-face and online teaching and learning modules. They also get stimulator training at the University's Centre for Innovation in Medical Education and a chance to work in hospitals as well as community-based healthcare settings as part of their clinical rotations. ​​​
