The new RQF Higher Nationals in Healthcare Practice bring a new, responsive and refreshing approach to Higher Nationals for the Health and Social Care sector. Developed with input from employers, educators, students and service users, the new qualification sits alongside its sister qualification, the Higher Nationals in Social and Community Work. The new qualifications share core units, and practice themes across all units, focused on the core knowledge, skills, values and behaviours required of practitioners in the sector.

Modules include: Law, Policy and Ethical Practice in Health and Social Care, Professional Principles and Values in Health and Social Care, Anatomy and Physiology for Health and Ill-Health and Evidence-based Practice. There is a mandatory work placement in this qualification of 225 hours.
