This demanding route is designed to meet the needs of highly motivated graduates, looking to advance their career within the nursing profession. This course has been closely developed with local Trust partners to reflect the increasing and rapidly changing requirements in patient care provision. The MAN will create autonomous nurses with the clinical and leadership skills to synthesise data that will optimise the best possible patient care for adults.
The course will be split 50% in a dynamic clinical practice environment and 50% in academic setting of the University. The MAN leads to professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), as well as a Master’s degree. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to practice as a Registered Nurse in the adult field of nursing.
Graduates requiring experience in clinical practice would be able to start the practical experience of the course as a graduate HCA in April 2018 with the theoretical component to follow from September 2018 for all students.
The two year full time course will focus on the acquisition of nursing skills in order to manage safe effective evidence based care to patients, through a range of relevant clinical placements, whilst undertaking the shift patterns of professional nurses. Students will be supported by appropriately qualified and motivated mentors. This will facilitate the development of nurses that have advanced caring skills and the ability to improve quality and drive health care services.
The development of complex adult nursing practice will be acquired from a variety of community and acute settings reflecting the key drivers within the health sector. Academic mastery will be cultivated through enquiry based learning approaches with opportunities for skills simulation in our laboratories. Learning will be supported by academic experts and researchers in the field of nursing and interprofessional learning with other healthcare disciplines.
