What will I learn?


Advanced practice is built upon four pillars of practice; clinical practice, facilitating learning, leadership, and evidence, research and development. This course will develop your professional practice in your workplace and the practice of others you work with to provide high quality care.

Responding to changes required in response to the 10-year NHS plan and the future needs of the population requires a workforce well prepared to provide practice and services that enhance the experience of service users. The generic nature of the course supports all students from a wide variety of professions and roles to apply learning to their individual circumstances and develop advanced professional practice.

Why study Healthcare Practice Neonatal Pathway?

Some priority areas have been identified for the local workforce and these have been included as identified pathways (Simulation or Neonatal). This will enable individuals working in specific roles to meet the requirements of their employers.

The MSc Healthcare Practice (Neonatal Pathway) is designed to be a flexible and responsive course, meeting the learning and development needs of all healthcare professionals. It is open to applicants who have at least 12 months experience on a neonatal unit and are working a minimum of 23 hours per week clinically throughout the programme.

Through critical analysis of theory, research, policy and legislation you will be supported to advance scholarship and practice. A culture of interprofessional collaboration will be fostered through the provision of opportunities to learn with, from and about others including service-users. Knowledge and skills gained could enhance your continuing development, improve your performance at work and benefit the organisations that you work for now and in the future.

It is open to both experienced and newly registered healthcare practitioners working in a range of roles and service contexts.

How you’ll be assessed

There is a variety of assessments from case studies to examinations. Throughout the course your knowledge and skills will be informally assessed through a variety of learning activities. You will be encouraged to engage in self-assessment and may be actively involved in peer assessment. Formative assessment (during the module but not part of the final assessment) opportunities will be offered within each module as a part of your on-going learning.
