Course summary

The MSc Advanced Nursing Practice programme is aimed at students who wish to develop a career as an advanced nurse practitioner. It is underpinned by the Advanced Nursing Practice Framework for Northern Ireland (DoH 2016). This co-produced programme has been designed to equip registered experienced nurses with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and competencies to make a meaningful contribution to patient care in a safe and professional manner.

The unique commissioning arrangement within Northern Ireland means that students undertaking the MSc Advanced Nursing Practice are commissioned by their employer to a Band 7 Advanced Nurisng Practice Trainee post. On successful completion of this course, they are eligible to apply for a Band 8a Advanced Nursing Practitioner post. Graduates of this course are also eligible to apply for PhD study.

Students are appointed to full-time ANP trainee posts within the HSCTs or GP Federations in Northern Ireland and undertake the course on a part time basis. They will complete the practice learning component, (totalling 258 days), by working as a trainee ANP for 3 days per week in practice under the supervision of a Clinical Practice Supervisor and spend 2 days per week with university learning.
