Why choose this course?

The postgraduate forms a pathway towards the MSc Nursing.

This course will provide you with an opportunity to develop master’s level education in contemporary specialist nursing theory and practice in relation to your chosen area. It is suitable for experienced nurses who wish to advance their professional career and contribute to the delivery and future development of specialist clinical nursing care in order to enhance the quality of the service users and carers experience. This is achieved by maintaining high standards of knowledge, skills and proven abilities through the education of specialist clinical nurses.

You will develop valuable knowledge and skills in communication and clinical nursing leadership and the ability to articulate and advocate on behalf of the service user and carer which is central to the role of the specialist nurse in practice.

What happens on the course?

This course values strong clinical nursing leadership and encourages accountability for ensuring a high quality and patient-centred care experience for individuals and their families. Content is based on advancing theory, principles and role concepts of specialist clinical nursing and can facilitate your practice to an expert level as defined by Patricia Benner (1984) in From Novice to Expert; excellence and power in nursing practice. You will utilise a research and evidence based approach designed to inform your specialist nursing practice in the core central tenets that underpin specialist care.

Why Wolverhampton?

This course aims to meet the requirements for the development of specialist clinical nurses as key professionals contributing to the provision of high quality nursing care. There will be opportunities for:

  • Professional networking and peer group support
  • Debate and discussion in order to formulate the professional beliefs and values of specialist nursing within the contemporary political and professional context of health care
  • Support from a friendly, helpful and student-focused course team of academic and administrative staff.

Career path

Our course teams have worked closely with employers and key stakeholders to develop a framework of core knowledge and skills and ensure a nationally consistent approach to specialist clinical nursing in the specified field. The need to put the patient at the forefront of all decision making is essential and the specialist nurse is in a uniquely privileged position to ensure that this is done.

This course, as well as preparing for and developing your specialist clinical nursing role and practice, can also be the first step to further academic qualifications. Further study is available to progress in your studies at level 7 and achieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Nursing and ultimately an MSc Nursing.

Participating in academic study at this level will encourage analysis and criticality; this will continue to improve the experience of the patient and may offer significant opportunities for promotion and career advancement.
