Course summary

This course will enable you to develop competency in advanced practice.

This course will help you to build the knowledge and skills you need to safely assess, diagnose and treat or refer patients presenting with undifferentiated problems within the healthcare setting in which you are working. This includes the prescription or administration of medication according to the rules governing your particular profession.

You'll gain professional skills including risk management, resilience and leadership, in order to progress your journey towards advanced practice. You'll also learn how to manage patients presenting with complex problems, taking into account all the factors which contribute to the individual's problems.


Successfully completing the Non Medical Prescribing module will enable you to legally prescribe medicines and appliances.

Course content

You'll need to be able to work with a mentor (a qualified Advanced Clinical Practitioner, GP, or doctor of registrar level or above) in the area of practice where you are currently employed throughout the course.

You will spend a full day each week with your mentor to work on skills and competencies learned in class and to develop your competency in your own area of practice.

This course is also available as a three-year MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice which provides all the competencies required to be an advanced clinical practitioner as well as giving you the opportunity to undertake a service improvement project (dissertation) in the third year.

Careers and skills

The demand for qualified Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) is growing, and on completion of this course you will be able to apply for and work as an ACP. As this is a generic course, you will be able to apply your skills in different clinical settings.
