Industry links and employability

This programme meets the demand for the preparation of both specialist and extended role practitioners. The themes offered link closely with the pre-registration undergraduate programme offered at the University as well as being developed in conjunction with local clinical need to address the growing number of graduate nurses looking to be educated at Masters level, namely those wishing to work in clinical leadership or extended roles in clinical practice as nurse practitioners or consultant nurses.

Close involvement of NHS clinical staff in the planning and delivery of courses ensures that the programme is current and relevant.

The programme also provides a platform for students to move into the field of research, with a number of past students completing PhDs.

Students who have completed the course have also gone on to teaching roles within the NHS and Higher Education Institutions. Job titles of former students include Clinical Nurse Educator, Health Care Practitioner and Clinical Risk Nurse.
