Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care (Nursing)

The course is suitable for all graduates who are registered nurses. It will provide the opportunity to study complex issues in a supportive and multi-professional environment. You will learn skills in critiquing and applying research, and grow your leadership skills whilst keeping your client and their family central to all that you do. The course will prepare you for new, efficient and ethical ways of working that will offer better quality nursing by placing service users and carers at the centre of decision-making, and enable you to respond to the increasing pressures on the current healthcare system. The course offers teaching in the latest theoretical and clinical developments relating to nursing and will develop your research skills and critical thinking, providing the opportunity to conduct research under expert supervision. You will have the opportunity to debate nursing provision in multi-professional contexts, and develop a foundation of research skills.
