Advanced Practice in Health Care

This programme enables experienced health care professionals from varied clinical backgrounds to develop their skills and knowledge to an advanced level of practice. The programme has also been carefully mapped against the prospective Advanced Nurse Practitioner competencies of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Entry requirements

Normally a 2.2 degree or its equivalent in a relevant subject. However, students do not necessarily require an initial degree in order to undertake the course. Students may be required to undertake pre-requisite studies that could include the foundations in physiology and health assessment module. This would be viewed as pre-clinical study and may be required to provide an adequate knowledge base in human physiology, pathology and applied therapeutics and developing clinical diagnostics. This prerequisite study will also provide a mechanism of ensuring that students have adequate academic skills for Master's level study and could be utilised in the acquisition of a 1st level degree. All applicants will be profiled to consider any equivalent prior learning. The course is not open to international applicants.

Course modules

Modules typically include: foundations in research; clinical assessment and diagnostic skills; anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology for advanced clinical practice; advanced practice (management and leadership); advanced practice and education.
