Our written testimonial
We feel honoured and privileged to be delivering this programme here in the South West of England. The programme sits in the Faculty of Health, under the School of Nursing and Midwifery therefore bringing a richness of collaboration across disciplines.
We are a group of lecturers still practicing clinically from a diverse range of professional backgrounds, including qualified ACP’s, General Practitioners and a nurse consultant. We also bring in visiting lecturers who are specialists in their field enabling us to offer a high calibre of knowledge, expertise, and broad perspectives unique to Plymouth, through which we aim to guide you on your journey to gaining your MSc.
Our aim is focused on building and enhancing existing knowledge and skills and take these into the realms of Advanced Practice. Defined by HEE (2017), an Advanced Level of practice allows you to eventually work autonomously and see undifferentiated patients independently by honing and developing your clinical examination skills underpinned by sound clinical reasoning and complex decision-making skills.
We have developed the content of this programme to be appropriate and relevant to a multitude of clinical environments, disciplines, and settings and as such has a generalist foundation. We embrace the opportunities for collaborative learning from a variety of disciplines such as nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, physiotherapists, midwives, operating department practitioners, occupational therapists, mental health nurses, learning disability nurses and many more, which ensures the course remains adaptable at its’ core.
