Course summary


This course is delivered on a part-time basis over 2 - 5 years and is designed to meet the current health and social care agenda. It’s aimed at existing primary care nurses looking to develop their knowledge and skills to an advanced level, as well as acute care staff looking to transition into the primary care sector.

You’ll develop your practical and theoretical knowledge as well as your leadership and research skills, so that you’re confident in managing and delivering care across the primary care sector.

As well as time spent on placement, you’ll take part in interactive lectures, group tutorials, and simulation and case-based learning. The course will be delivered via blended learning, using the university’s virtual learning environment, Moodle.

Throughout the course, you’ll be encouraged and supported to manage your learning proactively, so you can fully engaged with your own professional development and life-long learning.

When you're on campus you'll be based in our award-winning Brooks building, equipped with specialist health facilities and simulation technology.
