    Course Summary

    Psychiatric nursing is a challenging field, and one which requires many more skilled graduates than Canada’s universities can produce. Brandon University’s Master of Psychiatric Nursing program is designed for students who already have a relevant Bachelor’s level degree as well as a strong foundation in psychiatric nursing. It will include a great deal of specialised health care content but also content related to leadership and organisational development. It will give you the skills you need to qualify for the most advanced roles in clinical practice, education or administration.

    You can select one of three degree foci, either Education, Administration or Clinical Practice.

    Once you graduate, you will be skilled in reflexive practice. You’ll be able to anticipate and provide for a wide range of health care needs, undertake an independent practice or pursue a PhD degree. You could take a role as a teacher, mentor or role model to psychiatric nursing students.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
