The Advanced Critical Care Practice course is aimed at experienced nurses with at least five years post-registration critical care experience, who are currently working in a critical care area, and are interested in advanced critical care practice.
The MSc Advanced Critical Care Practice will prepare experienced nurses and other appropriate health care professionals in collaboration with the local health service to become a highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioner. The Advanced Critical Care Practice course will draw on the skills and knowledge of those who contribute to the established MSc Advanced Practice in Health Care and will also share the core clinical modules of that programme. A further three new modules have been developed in order to meet the particular needs of the clinician in the critical care environment.
This part-time Advanced Critical Care Practice programme will enable the development of experienced critical care nurses to:
become advanced practitioners in line with current health policy. provide practitioners with the clinical skills and knowledge to provide safe, ethical, competent, evidence based care and treatment at an advanced level in the critical care environment. develop the practitioners’ knowledge and skills with regard to their roles as managers and leaders in the context of advanced practice. develop the practitioners’ knowledge and skills with regard to their role as educators. develop practitioners’ skills and knowledge in relation to working in partnership with patients, families and other professionals in the provision of the highest standard of health care.
