Nursing (Advanced Cardiac Care)
The course adopts an evidence-informed nursing approach by reviewing, synthesising and incorporating contemporary professional and political drivers to ensure that the profession remains dynamic, proactive and responsive in delivering safe, confident, competent and compassionate quality care and excellence in cardiac nursing practice. This course offers experienced cardiac nurses the opportunity to develop their personal and professional autonomy within their areas of practice.
You must be a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council; have an honours degree (2.2 or above) in a related subject or evidence of study at degree level (opportunities for individual APEL are available on application); be employed by a healthcare organisation within cardiac care for the duration of the course.
Core modules: Advanced acute cardiology; advanced inquiry in nursing; conceptualisation of nursing through person-centred care; enhancing the user/carer experience through evidence-based nursing (dissertation). Option modules: advanced management of secondary prevention in coronary heart disease; advanced physical assessment and disease management skills; arrhythmia management; diagnosis and management of heart failure.
A variety of creative formative and summative assessments are included. Detailed feedback is provided in relation to all assessment criteria via the student intranet. Examples include reflective essays, oral presentations, cases studies, OSCEs and the final dissertation project.
