Kelly Burn, Master of Nursing Graduate

I would definitely recommend EIT's Master of Nursing programme.  The papers are very practically based and totally relevant to everyday nursing practice.  The tutors give fantastic support, especially when I completed my Masters Thesis.  The online aspect of the courses means that you can study with EIT easily from throughout NZ.   The knowledge from the qualification has helped my nursing practice immensely, meaning my patients have received top rate nursing care.
