The Advanced Healthcare Practice Programme concentrates on clinical skills acquisition, underpinning existing knowledge and experience and covering both technical and non-technical factors.

As a graduate, you will use advanced clinical reasoning, critical thinking, collaborative working and creative problem solving to assess and manage a variety of conditions. You will work towards competency in advanced practice and will help to lead contemporary healthcare practice, improving the health and wellbeing of patients, carers and their families.

This part time course has a strong emphasis on self-guided study. A 10 credit module, for example, involves two hours timetabled study per week for 15 weeks, backed up by significant independent study focussed on Blackboard learning resources.

In terms of student support, you can look forward to a comprehensive induction programme, academic support from module leaders and the services of a Personal Tutor.

Formal Teaching takes place in Tithebarn Street in the city centre. This vibrant location offers everything you could possibly need during your studies including clinical skills rooms with examination, care and diagnostic facilities, mannequins, anatomical models, ECG and resuscitation equipment. Independent study resources for nursing and allied health are kept in the on-site Avril Robarts library.
