Course content

This programme's development is in response to a demand from Masters Graduates for a programme that prepares them for the roles of Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP). Nurses who have completed Masters programmes not specifically designed to prepare Advanced Nurse Practitioners for practice, require further specialist knowledge and skills in order to pursue a role as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. This programme's development is a direct response to that demand.
