he Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) team at London South Bank University (LSBU) has a long history of delivering high-quality ANP education, initially with the first ANP programme in the UK based at the RCN Institute, London and subsequently at LSBU. LSBU has provided ANP education at both degree and masters level in the past. However developments in policy related to advanced nursing practice have increasingly emphasised the need for masters level education to inform and underpin nursing activities at an advanced level.

Graduates would be required to enrol to undertake this MSc top-up within two years of completing the PgDip ANP. Those choosing to progress to the MSc ANP award have six years overall to complete this award from point of registration.

Dissertation

This dissertation module provides the opportunity to undertake an original enquiry in a chosen area of professional practice. Through the module you'll be able to consolidate and extend your knowledge and understanding of research and evaluation design or of systematic literature reviews. You'll be supported to develop the practical skills necessary to plan and carry out your chosen project. You'll be provided with an opportunity to identify major theoretical influences on salient practice concerns and set these within a critical framework. Additionally, you'll be encouraged to cultivate organisational and time management skills, which will be required to successfully accomplish the dissertation. The dissertation should be directly related to professional practice.

There are three choices of approach as discussed in the Assessment section.

Teaching and learning

Students will need to attend six planned dissertation preparation sessions, and will additionally be supported through the dissertation by a supervisor.

Assessments

The assessment is a 12,000 word dissertation on either:

a) A research project

b) A work based project - service evaluation, audit, role evaluation, practice development project

c) A mini systematic review - a review that aspires to the rigour of a Cochrane review but recognises the student has time limits and is unlikely to get access to, for example, much grey literature.

Employability

To date we have prepared over 1,000 ANPs who have gone on to enjoy excellent employment opportunities. For example our graduates are now making a positive impact on service delivery and patient care in general practices, walk-in centres, urgent care centres, minor injury units,A&E departments, refugee/asylum seekers/homeless projects, elderly care facilities, 'out of hours' developments, rapid response services, prison services, intermediate care teams, generalist and specialist acute services,critical-care and ITU, outreach initiatives that cross traditional healthcare boundaries, and innovative community-based services. Some are now lead nurses within social enterprises, partners in general practices, nurse representatives on commissioning boards, community matrons and nurse consultants.

At lunch-time each Thursday a Grand Round presentation takes place at Ealing Hospital Postgraduate Centre, in the tradition of all prestigious British postgraduate medical teaching establishments. Consultant staff from medical specialities lead presentations of interesting and unusual clinical cases, followed by a lively session of questions and debate on medical issues raised. Some of the sessions are provided by invited medical speakers of international reputation. Recent advances in medical practice and a wide range of controversial and topical medical issues are discussed with the benefit of authoritative input from senior medical colleagues. This extremely valuable educational resource is part of the routine weekly schedule for all MD fellows.

Accreditation
