Therefore your assignments will be firmly grounded in the realities you face in the workplace, developing skills and knowledge that will lead to practical benefits for you and your team.

Alongside the clear career benefits this qualification brings, this challenging course is also hugely rewarding on a personal level and many of our students comment on the enormous sense of satisfaction and achievement in gaining an award at this level.

We also offer a Postgraduate Diploma Advanced Nursing, which has the same taught modules but does not include a dissertation.
