Graduate Diploma in Nursing

Program Description

Advanced nursing practice is directed a high degree of expertise as a nurse with greater levels of responsibilities, leadership in leading and providing responsive nursing care for individuals and families in general and specialized care, and increased understanding of the value of research and evidence-based practice. Further, the course is guided by the belief that post graduate education builds upon undergraduate education and previous clinical experience, and therefore the education process of the course is committed to provide an environment of critical inquiry, testing of ideas, generation and expansion of knowledge including the development of leadership capability and increased awareness or research skills. The course has been designed to reflect these beliefs.
