Where can postgraduate study in Advanced Nursing take you?

Advanced Nursing qualifications provide registered nurses with more opportunities.

Many graduates continue to work within their health profession while others work in health-related fields, social services, or local or central government. Postgraduate study can bring many career benefits such as specialist skills and enhanced knowledge, entry into specific occupations, higher starting salary and progression rates, research capability or achievement and evidence of high academic attainment and self-discipline.

The Nursing Council of New Zealand has approved the Master of Nursing programme as preparation for nurse practitioner roles.
