Course content

Whether you work in cardiac, emergency, critical or primary care you’ll explore clinical practice, education, research and leadership and learn how to apply these to your nursing practice.

Based in either Cambridge or Chelmsford, you’ll learn amongst other students with a particular interest in your chosen area of advanced nursing practice. Together, you’ll explore and apply the current policies, laws and procedures that apply to nursing patients at this advanced level.
When it comes to work placements, you’ll need to already be employed in a care environment suitable to your chosen route. Yourmanager should agree to provide you with a designated clinical supervisor, who will support and nurture your clinical practice whilst also ensuring it can be fully assessed.

Practicing at an advanced level of nursing practice is a demanding and challenging role. With our MSc Advanced Nursing Practice accredited by the Royal College of Nursing you’ll develop the skills and expertise you need to provide advanced nursing care.
