Course Summary

Overview

This programme continues your professional education and helps you to develop high-level decision making and leadership skills in complex situations which will help you to develop clinical practice and positively impact patient care.

This course shares teaching with other students from nursing and health care modules so that students can network, share ideas and debate.

One of the specialist elements of the programme is that students can ‘step on’ and ‘step off’ the programme at a variety of exit points. Students must complete 60 credits for the PG Cert, 120 credits for the PG Dip and 180 credits for the MSc and will study relevant clinical and core modules. If required students can achieve an exit award relevant to their clinical speciality.

Where appropriate, recognition of prior learning and experience can be accredited and students may have up to six years studying part time to complete their MSc.

We offer more than 50 different modules, which gives students the opportunity to explore their clinical speciality in depth. Examples of our modules include: Care of the Critically Ill Child/Adult, Responding to Physical Deterioration in Adults, Emergency Care and Trauma, Cancer and Palliative Care, Perioperative, Surgical, Anaesthetics and Recovery Care.

Graduate careers

This programme will equip nurses and allied health professionals from a variety of clinical settings to develop their research, leadership skills and clinical expertise at Masters level and for those wishing to develop their careers to an enhanced level of practice.

It allows students to either undertake individual modules for CPD study or combine these modules in order to work towards an award.
