Course summary

The MSc Advanced Practice is suitable for those working directly with patients in roles that afford a significant degree of autonomy in decision-making.

The Advanced Practice course is designed for registered healthcare professionals such as specialist nurses, advanced nurse practitioners and service leaders who wish to develop holistic advanced practice across a broad range of competencies (which may include clinical assessment) – the detail of which is individually negotiated. Such roles may involve working at the boundaries of traditional healthcare practice, pioneering and developing new services in response to changing needs.

This part-time Masters in Advanced Practice has a distinctive practical focus, and integrates practice-based and university-based learning through the process of cooperative inquiry. Study will focus on your day-to-day practice and examines competence in knowledge application, clinical and interpersonal skills, clinical judgement and decision making, influencing standards and development of care.

Assessment

As an Advanced Practice student, you will belong to a Co-operative Inquiry group, and (with input from the course leader) negotiate the development of the course timetable, the specific nature of what is to be studied, and the self and peer assessment processes. Whilst this may seem challenging, please be assured that experienced facilitators support these group processes. The Co-operative Inquiry approach does however demand a continuous engagement with, and contribution to the negotiated and agreed group processes, but this does obviate the need for single end of year assessments.

Careers

Graduation from this clinical Masters degree in Advanced Practice will enable you to make a significant contribution, directly and indirectly to the development, delivery and evaluation of service provision in your field. Many of our graduates report that their capabilities, confidence and job satisfaction are enhanced as a result of this course, and have been instrumental within role and service development, securing further advancement within their respective professions.
