This course aspires to meet the needs of registered nurses working in acute medical settings by equipping them with the evidence- based knowledge and skills necessary to care for patients with complex conditions. The programme is comprised of six theory/practice modules delivered over two years using a blended learning format, combining online learning and face-to- face workshops. On completion of Year One, students have the option of being awarded a Postgraduate Diploma or (if they have achieved a minimum 60% average mark across these modules) may progress on to Year Two to complete the MSc programme. Case studies will be used to help students test out what they would do in different situations. Students will work in a clinical setting for the duration of the programme, and will be supported by their unit manager and named preceptor. Modules titles are listed on the course website.
