Nursing (Advanced Nurse Practitioner)

According to the International Council of Nursing, a nurse practitioner is a registered nurse who has acquired the expert knowledge base, complex decision-making skills and clinical competencies for expanded practice which are shaped by the context and/or country in which they practise. Advanced practitioners are unique as nurses by virtue of their diagnostic and therapeutic capacity which allows the practitioners to work autonomously in carefully delegated aspects of a doctor's role in both the acute and primary care sectors. Our course is designed to facilitate your professional development as an advanced practitioner by providing you with the robust education required to support your role as a practitioner working at the interface of nursing with medicine. The course is structured in line with international and national guidance for nurse practitioner studies so you can be assured of the national integrity of your studies for health employers. The learning and teaching strategy within the programme has been guided by the definition of an advanced nurse practitioner. We use the competencies for advanced practice and the four pillars of advanced practice to articulate the core principle that advanced practice is a level of practice rather than a role.
