Master of Emergency Nursing

Master of Emergency Nursing


Emergency nursing is a dynamic and challenging specialty. The acuity of patients, complexity of care and degree of technological intervention are variable. Emergency nurses must be able to prioritise patient care and provide accurate assessment and effective ongoing management for a diversity of patient populations. Nursing practice in emergency departments may range from life-saving interventions to providing health promotion and injury prevention information.

The Graduate Certificate in Emergency Nursing consists of two semesters of part-time study. Students are required to complete 24 credit points or four units of study as prescribed in the unit of study tables related to this program, as shown below.

If you attain a credit average or better you may use your graduate certificate to articulate into a master's degree. Units studied at the graduate certificate level are, in most cases, credited towards the longer qualification.


Admission to the Graduate Certificate in Emergency Nursing is open to all nurses registered in Australia. In addition to this requirement, applicants for this specialty area are required to be working in emergency nursing and must provide a statement of support from their supervisor or manager in order to undertake the required clinical assessments.

Applications from all students should be made directly to Sydney Nursing School.


The Graduate Certificate in Emergency Nursing may only be studied by local students in the part-time mode. Students generally undertake two units of study per semester. All units are offered in intensive on-campus mode with students required to attend study days and undertake e-learning and independent study. Assessment consists of written assignments, clinical assessments and examinations.
