A condition of starting a place on the MSc Nursing programme is a submission of evidence of how your first degree and prior experience relates to nursing, applicants are able to accrue further evidence in the time between application and enrolment with the support of a dedicated supervisor where needed. The evidence will demonstrate that you meet the same standard of a student nurse completing their first year of the nursing programme. Your RPL will include a number of clinical proficiencies that need to be assessed in a care situation and the completion of a total of 760 hours worked in a relevant setting.
