Course content

Want to kickstart a challenging healthcare career? Training as a nurse paramedic could be the perfect match for you. With this distinctive integrated Masters degree, you’ll become a versatile and dynamic practitioner with a focus on person-centred care.

Over four years, our compelling nurse paramedic integrated Masters degree will develop your critical decision-making and ability to work on your own. Delve into theoretical knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the human body, emergency care, and how to manage chronic and complex care.

The first and final years of the programme will be taught primarily at the Edge Hill’s Ormskirk campus, while years two and three are delivered at our St James’ site in central Manchester.

During each year of study you’ll complete placements in a variety of healthcare settings. Simulated learning supports your real-world experience to develop your knowledge and skills.

Please note: This is an undergraduate programme. It is not suitable for those who already hold a nursing (NMC) or paramedic (HCPC) registration as a qualified practitioner. The course is fully integrated from the outset, so existing practitioners with elements of knowledge in one area of practice only will be unable to join midway through, as they will miss core elements of the other role included within the programme content and delivery. Standalone modules are also unavailable on this course. However, if you already hold NMC or HCPC registration as a qualified practitioner, and are looking to upskill in a specific area, please consider our postgraduate provision.
