The Advanced Clinical Practice programme offered by the Glyndwr University extends your knowledge and skills to advance levels within your specialist area of practice, through a selection of modules designed to enhance your ability to take on roles in advanced practice.

About

The Advanced Clinical Practice programme offered by the Glyndwr University aims to enable experienced professionals to: 

  • develop a systematic and critical knowledge and understanding of their specialist field of practice
  • develop a critical awareness of current problems, gaining new insights at the forefront of their area of advanced practice that enable further strategic development of practice and practice knowledge
  • enable practitioners to inform, enhance and develop their competency within their field of practice
  • demonstrate advanced scholarship in their subject area through the planning and execution of level 7 enquiry

The distinctive features of the Masters programme are its 600 practice hours and its focus on the four pillars of advanced practice. This means that the programme produces practitioners who are able to think at a high level in practice, but who also underpin their practice with a high level of scholarship. The programme therefore provides a first-class opportunity for post-registration learning in practice.
