Advanced Practice (Child Health)
This pathway builds on existing skills and experience to enable students to lead and support the development and subsequent delivery of evidence-based practice; it enables them to develop a critical understanding of research methods and methodologies, use theoretical concepts from nursing and other disciplines to generate researchable questions focused around child healthcare, develop a scientific basis for examining child healthcare practice, use the skills of critical reflection, and understand the political context of healthcare and how it influences practice; it is a suitable programme for practitioners from a wide variety of child healthcare areas.
Applicants should be working in a practice role which involves regular patient/client contact; the entry requirement for graduate study is a good Honours degree (2.1 or above). Applicants with other backgrounds or qualifications, including those without a degree are welcomed.
Staff from contracted Trusts are eligible to have their study funded subject to agreement by their manager; some scholarships may be available; prospective students may also wish to consult the Directory of Grant-making Trusts and Charities (available in local libraries); self-funding students may wish to consider a Career Development Loan.
