Course summary

The Advanced Clinical Practice MSc is for nurses, midwives, paramedics, emergency care practitioners, pharmacists, community matrons and other allied healthcare workers who are advanced practitioners or will be expected to fulfil an advanced practice role.

The course will enable you to develop skills in health assessment, diagnosis, clinical decision making, non-medical prescribing (if appropriate) and the application of evidence-based practice.

By using a blended learning approach, we create a practice-focused, student-centred, flexible programme that develops your ability to:

  • Challenge advanced clinical practice
  • Engage in independent evidence-based decision making
  • Determine creative and innovative solutions to practice issues
  • Develop analytical and intellectual skills at Masters level

You’ll be linked with a clinical preceptor who is an expert in your clinical speciality. You’ll also receive support for personal and professional development from a senior clinical lead of the same profession who acts as your mentor throughout the award.

As the course follows a standardised curriculum which has been developed with involvement from HEIs, Community Care, Primary Care, Mental Health and acute NHS Trusts, it will carry clinical currency across the West Midlands region and potentially beyond.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Advanced Clinical Practice.

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).

Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing.

You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.

Careers

After completing the course, you’ll be equipped to work as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner in a variety of settings.

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.
