NURSING 795, 795 A&B - Dissertation

60 Points

Semester 1 (NURSING 795 A)

Semester 2 (NURSING 795 B)


The 60 point dissertation is conducted full time within a single semester, or part-time over 2 semesters and may take the form of a critical review of literature, the preparation of a proposal for research that may involve a pilot study, analysis of data already collected or some combination of two or more of these elements. It is expected that most dissertations will be between 15,000 to 20,000 words, including tables, figures and references: appendices are additional. Students are expected to attend four study days across the two semesters of their enrolment. These study days are designed to provide students with the guidance and skills to complete the dissertation, in addition to that provided by their supervisor.
