Description

Advertisement

This course has been designed to enable heath and social care practitioners to gain an academic and possibly a professional accreditation as an Advanced Practitioner. The work on professional accreditation is being led by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, who define Advanced Nurse Practitioners as highly experienced and educated members of the care team who are able to diagnose and treat healthcare needs or refer them to an appropriate specialist if needed (AANPE, 2006).

Legislation is currently being reviewed to enable the NMC to set up a specialist subsection of the Nursing Register to record the Advanced Practice award, and the Council for Health Professionals is likely to follow suit. The AANPE have listed the key skills they see Advanced Practitioners having and this course is designed to facilitate the development and the application of these skills in practice.

Contents

The masters course consists of a combination of core
modules and option modules, totalling 180 credits at Level 7.
