Program Description

MSc Advanced Practitioner: Nurse

University of East Anglia Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

If you are a senior clinician or health care professional, the MSc Advanced Practitioner course will give you the advanced theoretical and clinical expertise you need to take your career to the highest level and meet the ever-changing needs and challenges of modern practice. As an experienced nurse, midwife, AHP or radiographer, you must have the most up to date skills and knowledge relevant to your own specific interests. Changes in health care mean you now also need to have a more dynamic, multidisciplinary understanding of all areas of practice – giving you both generic and specialist expertise. This will ensure you can provide the best and most appropriate health care to your patients.

We use a broad, multidisciplinary approach to ensure that what you learn is both relevant to your own interests as well as the demands of modern health care. You will also meet regularly with students from other schools within our Faculty of Health. This interprofessional philosophy encourages good communication and a greater understanding of different roles within the medical profession.
