Course in brief

This course will suit you if you are a sport and exercise graduate, a graduate from a related science or a medical student looking to specialise in the field of exercise physiology.

It is designed to focus on professional skills that improve your employability, as you learn with state-of-the-art equipment including environmental chambers, breath-by-breath analysers, blood sampling analysers and transcranial magnetic stimulation devices.

You also again gain real-world experience in areas relevant to your interests by working alongside experienced practitioners. Past projects have included working with participants in our cardiac rehabilitation programme.

Our teaching laboratories are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), as are most of our course staff. You can register on the BASES Supervised Experience Scheme yourself to achieve personal accreditation.

Course structure

The course is flexible in that it allows you to exit with a postgraduate certificate at the end of one semester (three 20-credit modules) or a postgraduate diploma at the end of two semesters (six 20-credit modules). You must complete the 60-credit research project to qualify for the MSc.

You spend around 100 hours of the course with an organisation related to the practice of physiology, which will allow you to apply your academic knowledge in a vocational setting. Previous students have worked in organisations including a cardiac rehabilitation programme and fall prevention classes with Albion in the Community.Many students have started their professional careers with the organisation that provided them with work experience.

Areas of study

In taught physiology modules, you'll experience and discuss the responses of the human body to various stimuli, including effect of environmental changes (heat and hypoxic chambers) and of ergogenic aids which can be used to simulate peculiar clinical conditions and help students understand better exercise tolerance. This novel approach to teaching integrative physiology will help you to develop a host of laboratory skills. You will be introduced to the latest in the research field of exercise physiology and will have an opportunity to write your own paper from your research project.

With modules such as Professional Enquiry, you'll also gain vocational skills to give you a competitive edge in the job market; through placement opportunities and chances to network in the world of exercise physiology, you'll graduate with a foot firmly in the industry.

The Community Specialist Practice MSc course aims to prepare community specialist nurses who are innovative and creative in their response to the healthcare needs of various client groups across different settings. This will be reflected in their capacity to meet the four broad areas of the NMC Standards for Specialist Education and Practice. This requires the ability to assess and problem-solve complex ambiguous situations in often contradictory and changing healthcare environments and to actively collaborate in the provision of equitable services. The pathways offered at University of Brighton include:

- General Practice Nursing
- Nursing in the Home / District Nursing.

This course provides the opportunity to gain both a professional qualification and an academic award at master’s level. Students are supported by a practice teacher (and mentors where appropriate) in practice placements within their employing trust.

Professional accreditation:

On successful completion of this course you will have your professional pathway award recorded on your nursing record with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Course structure:

Students are allocated practice placements by their employing trust, and are assigned a practice teacher to support their learning in practice. Students undertake a period of alternative practice when they can spend a week in another context that is of value to their role.
Our courses encourage shared learning between the community nursing specialities so that the benefits of developing intra-professional collaboration can be enhanced. Therefore programmes have been designed to include modules in which learning is shared with students from other disciplines, and where possible, other professions.
A variety of learning and teaching strategies are utilised including problem-based and work-based learning. You need to be highly motivated and be prepared to actively engage with all aspects of your learning.

Areas of study:

A central mandatory module within the course relates to leading change in practice development - an essential skill for specialist practitioners. An individual approach to planning is taken with each student through a personal development plan and learning contracts that are agreed between the student, university and employer. Modules also allow students to focus their practice assignment work on areas of value to their role. Core modules are as follows:

Work-based Learning

This module enables students to develop a specific area of practice, and is shared with other students in the graduate programme.

Research Methods

This module facilitates the development of knowledge and skills required to inform evidence-based practice and prepares students for the completion of their dissertation.
Leading Change in Practice Development

The aim of this module is to develop practitioners who will take a lead role in the management and development of effective strategies for health and social care interventions. This module is shared across the community nursing programmes and may be undertaken by others within the graduate programme.

Nurse Prescribing from the Community Nurse Prescribers Formulary
This module is mandatory for those undertaking the Nursing in the Home / District Nursing pathway.
In addition to the core modules mentioned above students can choose from a wide choice of optional modules allowing them to study topics of personal and professional interest.

Syllabus:

Leadership and Management
Practising Public Health
Assessing Individuals and Families
Practice Development through Work-based Learning
Investigating Health and Social Care

Career and progression opportunities:

Most graduates go on to work within the NHS in a variety of community nursing and primary care settings. The context of practice both within and without the NHS is constantly changing and opportunities for innovative approaches to service provision exist.

It is possible to take modules for this course as single stand-alone modules, either as a sample of Masters level study, or as part of your continuing professional development.
