This taught Masters programme nurtures talented and innovative professional practitioners, placing practice at the forefront. The course is delivered through the five specialist pathways long associated with the School of Nursing & Midwifery, enabling students from differing professional backgrounds to review their own practice and share balanced and critical findings that contribute towards improving the quality and efficiency of health and social care provision on a global level.
We work closely with our local Healthcare providers to design bespoke clinical experiences for our Masters students. Each student will undertake 225 hours' clinical experience in a setting relevant to their studies to allow them to develop their ideas to completion. Students work within regional centres of excellence, and many develop contacts and friendships that continue throughout their careers.
Advanced Professional and Clinical Practice highlights
With approximately 3,500 students, the School has one of the most extensive portfolios of programmes of any nursing and midwifery school in the UK or Ireland.
•All students will undertake 6 modules, which are delivered through a range of blended learning strategies, plus a period of clinical practice. A proportion of the content is delivered through on-line methods, which supports the philosophy of the programme, that it is open to local, national and international applicants. Students complete an agreed range of optional and specialist modules, generating new ideas for improvements in practice. Then, through their dissertation, they have an opportunity to critically review in greater detail innovative or emerging areas of their professional work.
