About Advanced Clinical Practice and Advanced Clinical Practice ( Advanced Nurse Practitioner) at Bournemouth University

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.

Apprenticeship route: We also offer an apprenticeship route for MSc Advanced Clinical Practice and MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (Advanced Nurse Practitioner). Applications for the apprenticeship route must be made via an employer; therefore prospective apprentices should be employed in a healthcare role and have the support of their employer.  

Please note: To be eligible for the postgraduate loan and Academic Excellence Scholarship, you must enrol onto the full MSc route.

This course will support you to gain the knowledge and skills required for the development of an Advanced Nurse Practitioner or Advanced Clinical Practice role, both professionally and academically at Master’s level.
