Course summary

Overview

Are you a nurse or allied health professional that cares for critically ill patients? Perhaps you work in a high dependency or critical care area and wish to learn more about management of the critically ill patient? Or maybe you care for critical care survivors in step down areas? If so, this advanced clinical practice pathway in critical care, is designed to provide you with the solid academic foundation that you’ll need to progress as an advanced clinician.

On this course you’ll develop advanced assessment and clinical reasoning skills for the acute management and rehabilitation of critically ill patients from intensive care units through to their discharge. You’ll learn a comprehensive knowledge of critical care, which will enable you to work at an advanced level of practice. By studying the latest practices, policy and research, you’ll be able to apply the theory you’ll learn into practice to help your patients and improve their quality of care and health outcomes.

The full master's course can be studied 1 year full-time or 3 years part-time starting in September. If you don’t want to commit to full or part-time study of the entire master's, you can develop your educational portfolio over a longer period of time by undertaking staged study that leads to the award of Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and MSc in separate stages. Each stage can be studied 1 year part-time starting in September. You can also study the combined PgDip (PgCert and PgDip) as a 2 year part-time course starting in January. The MSc stage (dissertation) can also be studied 1 year part-time starting in May.

Careers and your future

Following successful completion of this programme, you’ll be prepared for senior clinical or leadership positions within critical care settings at Band 7 or 8a level in critical care.

You’ll graduate as a practitioner that makes a positive impact on patient care. You’ll gain a deep understanding of a range of clinical skills and knowledge that will allow you to manage critically ill patients. Alternatively, you could advance to a PhD or research degree and enter into a clinical academic pathway. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
