Why study MSc Advanced Clinical Practice at BU?
Advanced Clinical Practitioners are experienced clinicians with expertise in their scope of practice, managing defined episodes of clinical care independently, from beginning to end
Build on your current registrant level of practice through academic and workplace-based learning, to attain advanced clinical practice competencies and capabilities, in-line with nationally recognised advanced level criteria (Health Education England)
Extend your critical thinking, analytical and reflective skills, and integrate new, as well as enhance existing clinical practice skills, knowledge and competence, within your practice setting
Gain the skills to support the provision of high-quality healthcare through a more autonomous, independent practice role within the multidisciplinary healthcare team
Two pathways available: if you are a nurse, you will undertake the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (Advanced Nurse Practitioner) qualification; if you are an allied health professional, pharmacist, midwife, healthcare scientist or other registered non-medical healthcare professional then the MSc Advanced Clinical practice is appropriate for you, in supporting your advanced clinical practice role.
ApprenticeshipWe also offer an apprenticeship route for MSc Advanced Clinical Practice and MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (Advanced Nurse Practitioner), for which the entry criteria and structure of the programme are slightly different from the non-apprenticeship route. Applications for the apprenticeship must be made via an employer - therefore prospective apprentices should be employed in a healthcare role and have the support of their employer. Please go to the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice - Apprenticeship (advanced clinical practitioner integrated degree route) course page for more information.
Please note: To be eligible for the postgraduate loan and Academic Excellence Scholarship, you must enrol onto the full MSc route.
