Course summary

Overview

The challenges faced by the NHS include an ageing workforce, rise in chronic conditions and complex comorbidities, recruitment difficulties, financial pressures, all combined with a rise in patient expectations. These challenges require new models of healthcare provision and a flexible workforce. As well as building capacity in the workforce, this includes the development of new and advanced roles and innovative attitudes toward the mix of skills in teams. Increasingly nurses and other registered practitioners take on roles that have traditionally been the domain of doctors.

The MSc Advanced Clinical Practice has been specially created for such practitioners and provides the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge, skills and confidence to autonomously manage complex cases within specific areas of practice.

Focusing on high-quality teaching with plenty of opportunity to develop clinical skills in a practical setting, the course provides an educational structure that links to relevant competency frameworks and supports the NHS Career Framework.

One of the key benefits of the course is that you will work alongside students from a variety of backgrounds and specialist fields, giving you the chance to share experiences and best practice.

Careers

Typically applicants are experienced clinical staff – you may already have the title 'practitioner' or be in a developmental position. Either way this course is a real investment in your career, giving you the opportunity to advance your practice and widen your career opportunities.

You can access our Careers and Employability Service during your studies and after you graduate. Expert staff will help you research career options and job vacancies, build your CV or résumé, develop your interview skills and meet employers.

Students can also exit with PGDip award.
