As a graduate, you can then choose to further your qualifications with a Graduate Diploma of Nursing, which requires an additional four courses, then add another four courses for a Master of Nursing (Coursework). The Graduate Certificate and Diploma programs are open to you if you do not have an undergraduate nursing degree, but have accumulated clinical experience as a Registered Nurse.
