Course content

This Master's course embraces the International and National advanced clinical practice picture supporting the development of your knowledge and skills at an advanced level, to prepare you for your Advanced Clinical Practice or Advanced Nurse Practitioner role. You'll extend your analytical and reflective skills, as well as integrating new and existing clinical skills within your practice setting to provide high-quality healthcare within the multi-disciplinary healthcare team.

There are two pathways available, if you are a nurse then the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (Advanced Nurse Practitioner) qualification will be most suitable; for midwives, allied health professionals and other non-medical healthcare professionals, the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice route is appropriate. The final year of the course concentrates on a service improvement project enabling you to combine the clinical elements of your advanced clinical role with leadership/management and service development and improvement.
