Masters degrees in Clinical Practice Nursing train postgraduates in the skills needed to provide expert advice, treatment and care for specific conditions. These include diabetes, cancer, respiratory disease and sexual health problems.
Related subjects include Clinical Practice and Nursing Practice. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Medicine, Midwifery or Nursing.
Clinical Practice Nursing is ideal for students wishing to specialise in a certain field of healthcare, such as those mentioned above.
Courses usually take an interdisciplinary approach to healthcare, such as evidence-based practice, whereby students will assess patients with different care needs, and learn to assess and monitor them accordingly.
Placements are normally a key component on these programmes. Often, you’ll be placed within a clinical healthcare setting, rotating between different kinds of patients. However, some courses offer the opportunity to specialise in a particular area of care.
Clinical Practice Nurses may work in settings as diverse as nursing homes, education facilities, community centres, and even prisons and rehabilitation centres.
