- With USQ’s Master of Health (Rural and Remote Health) will allow you to further develop skills in rural and remote health care, including emergency nursing and management of immunisation programs. You will also work with a senior academic and researcher to plan and design an independent research project.
- If you are a Registered Nurse wishing to further your knowledge and advance your skills in rural and isolated practice, this specialisation incorporates scheduled medicines, and enables you to apply for scheduled medicines endorsement for nursing practice in a rural and isolated practice area.
- A Rural and Isolated Practice Endorsed Registered Nurse (RIPERN/RIPRN) is authorised to obtain, supply and administer Schedule 2, 3, 4 and 8 medicines, under protocol.
- If you are not sure whether you would like to complete an entire masters degree, apply to study USQ’s Graduate Certificate of Health or Graduate Diploma of Health and take the credit from your studies to the Master of Health if you decide to continue studying.
Successful completion of the Master of Health will qualify you to apply for PhD entry.
