The programme aims to enhance skills such as consultation and clinical decision making and leadership; to improve quality and developing practice, leading to the application of knowledge and skills to a broad range of clinically and professionally challenging and complex situations.
Students on this course are mature professionally qualified people who are already competent practitioners with multifaceted experiences. The mainstay of the assessment process is based around individual assignments.

Teaching is provided by experience qualified advanced nurse practitioners who have a joint role between clinical practice and education. As part of a supportive network available during the programme students are individually allocated to a named university lecturer practitioner.
