Abstract

The literature describing the experience of nurses undertaking higher studies suggests that many students struggle with the demands of study and other aspects of their lives, such as work and family commitments. The aim of this paper is to encourage higher degree students to develop a strategic approach to their studies in order that they: (1) minimize the extra demands created by additional studies; and (2) make the most of their work as a student to facilitate the development of their careers and establish a track record in doing so. We also provide an overview of relevant issues to consider, including Thesis marking and discuss some of the practicalities to make the most of higher degree opportunities
