Course content

This Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Practice is the professional qualification for nurses who wish to gain entry to part three of the NMC nursing register as a health visitor or school nurse. Places on this programme are sponsored centrally through service commissioners and in partnership with health visiting and school nursing service providers.

 Key benefits

  • Benefits of the Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Practice include:
  • No.1 Nursing Faculty in the UK and 3rd in the world (2017 QS World University Rankings)
  • Completion of clinically-focused evidence-based core modules.
  • Access to lecturers who are active researchers in health visiting and school nursing.
  • Access to extracurricular seminars and lectures given by leaders in healthcare from around the world.
  • Located in the heart of London, across four of King's Thames-side campuses (Waterloo, Strand, St Thomas' and Guy's) and the Denmark Hill Campus in south London.

Description

You will undertake core modules in leadership in public health, evidence-based practice, healthcare research, child protection, specialist practice and for health visiting students, nurse prescribing. School nursing students may choose a clinically focussed option after discussion with the pathway leader. Students progressing to the MSc undertake a substantial project relevant to their own area of practice.

Course purpose

These pathways are designed to furnish qualified nurses with the evidence to demonstrate eligibility to register their specialist practitioner status with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). They may also suit registered practitioners who are supporting autonomous practice, supporting educational and practice development or exercising clinical leadership and who seek further educational opportunities to further this.

Course format and assessment

The programme begins in mid-September. Assessment is predominantly by coursework but at least one module is assessed by examination. Most modules have a single assessment and in addition students write up a project that analyses the research base or policy in an area of their choice.
