Advanced Clinical Practice PgDip

Course Introduction


Our course provides thorough preparation not only for Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP), but also for Advanced Clinical Practitioners and health professionals who wish to work at a higher level of practice. It has been developed for both experienced qualified registered nurses and other health professionals working in primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare settings.


Graduate and employer surveys and feedback indicate our graduates are making a positive impact on patient care and service innovation in general practices, walk-in centres, urgent care centres, minor injury units, emergency departments, projects for refugees, asylum seekers and homeless populations, elderly care facilities, ?out of hours? developments, rapid response services, intermediate care teams, prison services, acute medical and surgical teams, critical-care outreach and specialist hospital services. Some of our graduates are now lead nurses within social enterprises, nurse partners in general practices, nurse representatives on commissioning boards, community matrons and consultant nurses. Our first Paramedic student successfully gained his PgDip Advanced Clinical Practice in February 2018 and is now employed as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner in an Emergency Department in South London.
