City’s MSc 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.

The Advanced Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioner Postgraduate course is designed for registered nurses working in ophthalmic health or caring for people who are experiencing vision loss. It is for staff nurses and nurse managers, as well as those seeking a career in nursing or health research.

The Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care (Advanced Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioner) programme provides ophthalmic nurses with up-to-date research-based and theoretical knowledge of a wide range of ophthalmic fields.

The main focus of the Ophthalmic Nursing programme is prescribing within the context of ophthalmic nursing.

You will complete the non-medical prescribing programme in addition to ophthalmic-related modules which will enhance prescribing competence.

The degree programme offers education in the latest theoretical and clinical developments relating to the role of ophthalmic nurse practitioner. It also develops research and critical thinking skills and provides the opportunity to conduct a research project under expert supervision, laying the foundations for independent practice and research in the future. This provides you with the opportunity to create a challenging and rewarding Master's programme tailored to nursing ophthalmic care.
