Prepare for an advanced role in neonatal practice with a master’s in neonatal nursing at the University of Southampton. Our MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner) degree develops your existing neonatal clinical experience and skills, helping you take on greater responsibility and make more complex clinical decisions.
