Course content

The MSc Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care (Advanced Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioner) is a flexible, professionally orientated programme for nurses working in ophthalmic health and eye care within health and social care provisions.

Changes in healthcare needs and provision have led to the use of new technologies and more innovative and creative working practices. This course will help prepare a specialist research-focused workforce that will help revolutionise health and social care provision.

The course gives new, efficient and ethical ways of working that will offer better quality of life and quality of care by placing service users and carers at the centre of decision-making and service redesign. It will enable students to respond better to the increasing pressures within the current healthcare system.

The course offers teaching in the latest theoretical and clinical developments relating to ophthalmic nursing. It also develops research skills and critical thinking and provides the opportunity to conduct a research project under expert supervision, laying the foundations for independent research in the future. This provides students with the opportunity to create a challenging and rewarding Master's course tailored to ophthalmic care.
