Acute and Critical Care
Applicants need to be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), or the HCPC (Health Care Professions Council) and have a HE Diploma or evidence of RPL (Recognised Prior Learning). You must already be employed and practicing within an acute and critical care environment.
For the BSc (Hons) Acute and Critical Care programme, applicants require Professional Registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), plus 120 credits at Level 5 (Dip HE). Postgraduate Certificate applicants must meet the above criteria and usually possess a relevant Honours degree.
Modules include: Applied physiology of acute and critical illness; care and management of the acute and critically ill; legal and professional issues in caring for the acute and critically ill.
Modules are assessed through multiple-choice questions, viva voce (oral examination), assignments, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE) and written evidence of personal and professional development. The OSCEs will take place in May each year and be completed as part of the clinical skills modules and involve undertaking a comprehensive patient history, examining a particular bodily system, and identifying a management and treatment plan for the individual.
