Advanced Practice (Palliative Care Nursing)
This pathway equips practitioners to take forward innovations in care and service delivery, acknowledging the central position of nursing in palliative care and its potential to influence; the pathway is especially useful for practitioners who intend to become, or are already working as, a clinical nurse specialist, who are keen to develop palliative care nursing services, and those engaged in advanced palliative care nursing practice, or the preparation of others for such roles.
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 (minimum 2nd Class Honours or equivalent); 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; students not sponsored by their employer may wish to pursue other sources of funding; 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.
