MMedSci Nursing (top-up)
This course is tailored to meet the needs of clinicians working in practice and allows the in-depth study of research methods and consideration of an area of personal/professional clinical interest.
Who is the course for?
Students who successfully complete a Pre-registration Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing (Adult) within the School will have the opportunity to continue their studies with this separate ‘top- up’ programme, which comprises 60 credits at Level 7 and the award of MMedSci in Nursing. To access the programme you are advised to have a minimum of 6 months post registration experience and must be practicing throughout the duration of the programme to enable the integration of theory to practice.
What is the course about?
Senior health and social care professionals need to be able to translate and apply learning from academic programmes in order to make a meaningful contribution to practice. This programme will enable you to complete a substantial piece of work that has potential to stimulate development or innovation in your practice.
It draws together learning from the programme and engages the academic skills of critical appraisal with development of a proposal for application to practice. You'll identify a relevant issue and subject this to systematic analysis to produce an evidence-based report which addresses improvement objectives through deliverable recommendations.
