The distinctive features of the Masters programme are its 600 practice hours and its focus on the four pillars of advanced practice. Read more
The distinctive features of the Masters programme are its 600 practice hours and its focus on the four pillars of advanced practice. This means that the programme produces practitioners who are able to think at a high level in practice, but who also underpin their practice with a high level of scholarship. The programme therefore provides a first-class opportunity for post-registration learning in practice.

Students will be supported by a medical or clinical mentor over the two taught years, a value-added feature of the advanced clinical practice course that is not available in a traditional master’s course. Further, the development of a practice portfolio over the taught elements of the programme demonstrate the student’s capacity to function at an autonomous level in practice, while also illustrating the ability to consider the complex needs of their patients/clients. This again is generally not a feature of a traditional master’s course, and allows students to review and apply enhanced knowledge in practice as part of their clinical roles.

In order to facilitate this, applicants to the advanced clinical practice course will be required to have a responsible role in practice and to either be working as an autonomous practitioner, or to be able to secure a trainee advanced practitioner role.

The programme team work in partnership with the University Health Board and Wales Ambulance Service Trust to select candidates appropriate for this course interviewing applicants.

Key Course Features

-The course features a programme structure based on a 50% theory and 50% practice divide in programme hours
-Assessment of practice learning through a portfolio of evidence allows the student to demonstrate their progression in practice

The programme aims to enable experienced professionals to:
-Develop a systematic and critical knowledge and understanding of their specialist field of practice.
-Develop a critical awareness of current problems, gaining new insights at the forefront of their area of advanced practice that enable further strategic development of practice and practice knowledge.
-Enable practitioners to inform, enhance and develop their competency within their field of practice.
-Demonstrate advanced scholarship in their subject area through the planning and execution of level 7 enquiry.

What Will You Study?

Having studied 60 credits in year one, students may exit with a Postgraduate Certificate. Year one comprises Clinical Assessment in Advanced Practice and Non-Medical Prescribing OR Clinical Assessment in Advanced Practice, Clinical Pharmacology for Advanced Practice and a negotiated/optional module (for non-prescribing practitioners) for the Advanced Clinical Practice generic route.

For the Therapies route students will study; Assessment And Intervention, Clinical Evaluation and either Clinical Pharmacology for Advanced Practice or a negotiated/optional module.

Students wishing to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma will have studied 120 credits, and will have completed 60 credits in year one plus 60 credits from year two. All students will have studied Research Methods and Advancing Clinical Practice plus either a negotiated module or an optional module. In this way, students will have a structured approach that meets their professional needs, but which allows shared learning across disciplines to take place. As the students are practitioners working in a multi-professional environment in clinical practice, this framework of common elements with the opportunity for optional modules builds on multi-professional learning, but promotes the development of the students’ professional practice within their own speciality.

In year three all students will study the Dissertation. This is a module that is core to all health masters programmes and which allows a variety of approaches to the final project. Within the advanced practice curriculum, it is expected that students will direct their enquiry to a topic important to them as practitioners, and to which they will bring a level of enquiry that demonstrates, and is related to, their position as an advanced practitioner.

The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.

Career Prospects

On successful completion of the Advanced Clinical Practice/Advanced Clinical Practice (Therapies) course, students will be eligible to apply for advanced practice roles in a variety of settings, and in Wales, students will be eligible to use the title ‘Advanced’ on completion of the MSc. As it is validated by the relevant PSRBs, on completion of the Non-Medical Prescribing module, students will be able to record this qualification with their professional body (NMC, HCPC, GPhC).

State-of-the-art facilities

Our campuses are equipped with artificial simulated environments with contemporary healthcare technology, where you’ll learn in a realistic context, to put your knowledge into practice. The unpredictability of patient symptoms are mimicked using sophisticated software in a clinical ward setting, ranging from low to high dependency beds.

Investment in the Domus Initiative – an older adult artificial home environment – provides you with experience in caring for older people and dementia care. In a first for the Scottish university sector, we have established A Community Orientated Resource for Nursing (ACORN) where students can practice within a simulated primary care environment.

Lanarkshire and Paisley campuses also provide midwifery students with excellent learning and teaching environments with facilities and equipment that includes a birthing room with maternal simulator and a birthing pool for simulated water births.

Life-changing research

We work jointly with a range of partners, both nationally and internationally, on our research interests, and this directly informs teaching at UWS – which means that you’ll learn from the experts.

Our programmes are informed by practice and all of our academic staff are members of the School’s Institute of Healthcare Policy and
Practice. Some of our most recent initiatives include –

• the launch of a new resource, ‘Jenny’s Diary’, which will provide an invaluable tool for families and practitioners to help people with a learning disability understand their diagnosis of dementia

• the development of a new ‘Philosophy of Care’ in partnership with Broomfield Court Care Home in Glasgow, which will look at ways of enhancing the culture and care within a care setting

We believe that nurses have an essential contribution to make to modern healthcare and its delivery. We aim to support you to become an exceptional registered nurse working in partnership with the public to promote health, and able to provide sensitive, evidence-based care and emotional support to clients, patients and their carers across the lifespan.

Our staff

Our approachable, available and supportive staff, work collaboratively with clinical practitioners to support our nursing students. They are committed to providing a vibrant, challenging and supportive learning environment which will enable students to fulfil their potential.

Our students

We regard nursing students as the potential nursing leaders of the future. We support students to become proactive, self-directed learners who will develop empathy, insight and intellectual independence enabling them to deliver care to the highest standards.

Theory

The Post Graduate Diploma prepares you for your future role as a skilled and reflective adult nurse, able to use sound clinical judgement to deliver thoughtful, compassionate, evidence-based care to enhance the future health and well-being of the communities you serve.

During your studies you will learn alongside students on other nursing programmes. You will be taught via lectures, seminars and co-operative learning groups. You will stay in the same CLG with other Post Graduate nursing students for the whole of your programme. This will provide you with the opportunity to form co-operative learning relationships with your peers.

Modules you will study include: Principles of professional identity; Knowledge and skills for nursing practice; Patient and client experience and contemporary nursing practice; Safety and risk in adult nursing care; Evidence-based practice and the nurse-patient or client relationship; Caring for the individual with long term conditions; Individual and public health policy; Supporting the individual with acute and complex adult care needs; Ethics and philosophy for nursing.

Practice

Practice experiences will take place across the beautiful North Yorkshire Region offering you experiences of delivering care with diverse communities in a range of health and social care environments. You will begin your practical experience three months into the programme. You are required to undertake a total of four periods of assessed practice over the two years.

The Department of Health Sciences has adopted a base and spoke model of practice experience to ensure your practice experience focusses on the learning outcomes you need to achieve. You will be allocated to a base practice experience area, which may be a day unit, clinic, community nursing team or hospital ward. From there, through negotiation, you will access spoke areas which will support and supplement your learning. This will provide you with some flexibility to follow the journeys of patients, clients, service users and carers.

Support

The programme is designed to ensure that you are well supported throughout the two years. In practice you have access to nurse mentors and link lecturers who will help to ensure you maximize your opportunities for learning. In theory you are allocated personal supervisors who will provide you with support for your academic work. Additionally Student Services acts as a first point of contact if you need information or assistance with a problem.

MSc in Nursing Practice

After successfully completing the Postgraduate Diploma with Professional Registration (Adult) you may, at a later stage, top up your qualification to an MSc in Nursing Practice through the RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) route by undertaking a 60 credit Service Improvement Project. If you do decide to top up to the MSc, the fees for this additional element of study will need to be paid either by you or your employer.
