About the course
Apprenticeship Standard: Advanced Clinical Practioner
Final Award: MSc Advanced Clinical Practice
This new MSc has been developed in collaboration with experienced health practitioners and NHS organisations to enable registered health professionals, who are working at higher levels of practice, to develop their career to achieve the capabilities of advanced practice as set out in the Multi-professional Framework for Advanced Practice (Health Education England 2017).
This is a multi-professional programme, open to nurses, midwives, paramedics, dietitians, pharmacists, physiotherapists, radiographers and radiotherapists. It will provide opportunities to challenge and critically analyse your professional practice and to achieve the learning and development required for you to achieve your scope of practice as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner.
The programme involves a significant level of work based learning in the practice setting where you will develop your scope of practice across the 4 pillars of advanced practice – advanced clinical practice, education, research and leadership (HEE 2017) .
In order to undertake either pathway you will need a supervisor with appropriate skills to support you to become an advanced clinical practitioner.
