This MSc Advanced Practice from University of Dundee is aimed at registered health, social care and nursing professionals working in or towards an advanced practice role.


Developed in collaboration with expert clinical practitioners, this  MSc Advanced Practice from University of Dundee is suitable for registered nurses, health and social care professionals working in or towards an advanced practice role. The course has been designed to comply with the Scottish Government requirements for advanced practitioners. 

You will be supported to develop the skills to practice autonomously. You'll be able to assess, diagnose, and manage undiagnosed, undifferentiated, and complex clinical presentations, in an evidence based, safe, effective and person-centred way. You will develop the knowledge and skills required for advanced practice by undertaking a range of modules based on the four areas of Advanced Practice:

  • Clinical Practice
  • Facilitation of Learning
  • Leadership and Evidence
  • Research and Development

You should be employed as an advanced practitioner or have a trainee advanced practitioner role in a relevant clinical environment with access to appropriate clinical support and supervision in order to gain the requisite knowledge and skills required for an advanced practitioner. We will ask you to demonstrate this support when you apply by providing a signed mentor and manager form.


On completion of this course you will have developed the knowledge and skills to enable you to develop as a leader in a changing healthcare landscape.

This course facilitates the development of lifelong learning skills (such as critical reflection, critical thinking, problem-solving and the use of evidence-based practice) to enhance your professional and academic skills.

This will maximise the opportunities for your career development and progression as an Advanced Practitioner.
