Overview

The course is delivered through the five specialist pathways long associated with the School of Nursing & Midwifery, enabling students from differing professional backgrounds to review their own practice and share balanced and critical findings that contribute towards improving the quality and efficiency of health and social care provision on a global level.

We work closely with our local Healthcare providers to design bespoke clinical experiences for our Masters students. Each student will undertake 225 hours' clinical experience in a setting relevant to their studies to allow them to develop their ideas to completion. Students work within regional centres of excellence, and many develop contacts and friendships that continue throughout their careers.

This Advanced Professional and Clinical Practice programme at Queen's University Belfast produces exceptional practitioners who have the skills necessary to promote and sustain innovative and emerging practice. Graduates of the programme go on to positions of leadership or research and teaching careers.

Student Experience

Students from different professional backgrounds come together on this programme and share expertise, review their own practice and share balanced and critical findings that contribute towards the improvement of the quality and efficiency of delivery of healthcare on a global scale.

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • We recognise that students at this level are interested in career advancement. Therefore, we have developed a wide range of modules; students can choose six modules from these, some of which are specialist modules and require the student to be working in a relevant area of practice. All students must complete one of the compulsory modules and a dissertation.
  • Students completing this pathway will consider leadership and strategic issues in the global delivery of healthcare. Graduates of the programme are able to demonstrate advanced practice in the context of emerging issues and clinical circumstances.
  • Students completing this pathway will often come from a Midwifery or Children's Nursing background. Modules offered consider issues such as family-centred health and social care, or developments in childbirth.
