You should consider this programme if you are a nurse or midwife with a degree who wishes to pursue a career in health visiting or school nursing.

This programme has been developed in response to on-going work by the Department of Health to re-affirm the essential role of the school nurse and health visitor in delivering a universal and early intervention service to children, young people and their families.

This programme has been developed with local partner healthcare organisations. It is intended to meet the needs and expectations of the new agenda and make a difference to the health and well-being of individuals and communities. This programme leads to a nationally recognised qualification and registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Please note Prescribing for Specialist Community Public Health Nurses is not a core course for the programme. However, most NHS employers will require you to complete this within your programme of study.

The aims of the programme are:

- To enable you to integrate the study of health, policy, research and evidence-based practice within the context of specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) practice

- To facilitate you to explore and debate policy, theory, and research related to health visiting and school nursing within the public health context

- To prepare you to meet the demands of delivering a service that meets the contemporary SCHPHN agenda

- To provide you with eligibility to work in a wide range of community-based settings mainly in health and education sectors.

The MSc in Advanced Practice (Healthcare Education) is aimed at all health and social care staff who are looking to develop their knowledge and skills as advanced practitioners. Over the past decade, the emergence of competencies, conceptual frameworks and operational tools, together with government and educational drivers, has firmly placed the notion of advanced practice and advanced level nursing as a core development area in the practice workplace.

This Master's course is likely to appeal to a wide range of professionals, for example, senior or consultant nurses (or those hoping to move into that role), community matrons/ caseload managers, social work team leaders, managers from prison and probation service, team leaders working in sexual health and substance abuse, midwives, and independent practitioners.

Key benefits

Prior learning can be accredited via our APEL process if you have already taken similar modules at level 7.

Course detail

The flexible nature of the course means that you can complete the modules in any order (with the only pre- requisite that a research methods module is completed prior to the dissertation). We will accept credits at Level 7 from other universities providing they can be mapped to our course learning outcomes. Once accepted on to the course, you will meet with the programme leader to plot your route to award and who will support you during your programme of study at the University of West London.

Generally, students will study 60 credits worth of modules each year. We recommend that students start the course with two modules: Role Development (20 credits) and Becoming an Advanced Practitioner (40 credits), unless the student has prior learning which can be credited against the course learning outcomes at this level. Role Development has 3 face to face days and 3 electronic study learning days and runs between October and December, whilst Becoming and Advanced Practitioner has 6 face to face days, and 6 electronic study days and runs from January to July.

Career and study progression

Completing the Masters programme will give you the skills and confidence to stand out in the graduate market. Since the introduction of the Graduate Curriculum in Nursing in 2010, a Masters degree will be the next stepping stone for career development for current cohorts of student nurses, so will be an advantage to those nurses currently looking to get ahead and establish their career pathways.

Opportunities for further study include progression to our MPhil programme, and onwards to a Professional Doctorate or PhD.

The MSc in Advanced Practice (Substance Misuse) is aimed at all health and social care staff who are looking to develop their knowledge and skills as advanced practitioners. Over the past decade, the emergence of competencies, conceptual frameworks and operational tools, together with government and educational drivers, has firmly placed the notion of advanced practice and advanced level nursing as a core development area in the practice workplace.

This Master's course is likely to appeal to a wide range of professionals, for example, senior or consultant nurses (or those hoping to move into that role), community matrons/ caseload managers, social work team leaders, managers from prison and probation service, team leaders working in sexual health and substance abuse, midwives, and independent practitioners.

Course detail

The flexible nature of the course means that you can complete the modules in any order (with the only pre- requisite that a research methods module is completed prior to the dissertation). We will accept credits at Level 7 from other universities providing they can be mapped to our course learning outcomes. Once accepted on to the course, you will meet with the programme leader to plot your route to award and who will support you during your programme of study at the University of West London.

Generally, students will study 60 credits worth of modules each year. We recommend that students start the course with two modules: Role Development (20 credits) and Becoming an Advanced Practitioner (40 credits), unless the student has prior learning which can be credited against the course learning outcomes at this level. Role Development has 3 face to face days and 3 electronic study learning days and runs between October and December, whilst Becoming and Advanced Practitioner has 6 face to face days, and 6 electronic study days and runs from January to July.

Attendance

The face to face days - which you must attend - will be held at the Berkshire Institute for Health (Reading) for both Year One modules.

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) are higher degrees obtained by research. Each offers an excellent opportunity to study a topic in-depth and at the same time to develop your intellectual, technical and managerial skills.

Research at the MPhil level represents an extension of existing knowledge. Most students enrol first for the MPhil and transfer to the PhD when their work has sufficiently developed. However, it is possible to enrol directly onto the PhD course if you are appropriately qualified.

Some students without previous research experience may enrol on the MPhil and complete a diploma in applied research methodologies during their first year of study.

You will have a supervisory team made up of a Principal Supervisor with experience in the chosen field, a further supervisor and, where appropriate an additional advisor.

You will be able to access all the general support facilities on offer at the University. Research will be judged through presentation of a thesis or artefact and a viva voce for academic assessment.
