    In Depth

    What will I study?

    In Year 1 you will begin to establish your identity as a practitioner. You will explore the concepts that drive the most current areas of professional practice and start to develop the key skills required to provide patient care across a range of healthcare settings. Your learning will be underpinned by a theoretical understanding of anatomy and physiology and the processes associated with human function, while you will also consider how research can be applied to practice.

    Year 2 will develop your skills in caring for those in an emergency and encourage you to consider the principles of planning specific care to patients across the lifespan and within specialist areas of practice. The focus will be on applying care using a person-centred approach, developing your knowledge of commonly encountered pathophysiological conditions and enabling you to provide care specific to the patient in any given setting. You will also enhance your research skills through an exploration of critical enquiry.

    In Year 3 you will consider specific areas of care provision and start to use this knowledge to develop your practice through exposure to primary care and alternative care settings. As you demonstrate your decision-making and clinical judgement skills, you will engage with audit and service improvement and work towards becoming an autonomous practitioner. You will gain a detailed understanding of how social and public health impact on care provision and individual health, while also developing a keen awareness of law and ethics within healthcare practice.

    Year 4 enables you to demonstrate that you have the skills, understanding and practice experience required to be an autonomous practitioner. Engaging with stakeholders and professionals throughout this year, you will demonstrate sound clinical judgement and decision making, develop your awareness of investigation and diagnostic tools, gain skills in leadership and management, explore the management of chronic and complex care, and focus on quality improvement, assurance and innovation. Building on the professional practice opportunities in the previous three years, the programme culminates in a 12-week placement to support your transition into professional practice.

    This programme adheres closely to the six core values of the NHS. These values, enshrined within the NHS Constitution, have been developed by patients, the public and staff to inspire passion in the NHS, guide it in the 21st century, and provide common ground for cooperation in achieving shared aspirations. Further information about the core values can be found at www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-nhs-constitution-for-england.

    How will I study?

    Years 1 and 4 of this programme are primarily delivered at Edge Hill University, however some sessions may also take place at Alder Hey Institute in the Park in which case you will be responsible for travel and parking costs. In Years 2 and 3 you will be based at St James’ in Manchester. You should be aware that you may incur additional travel costs due to the dual site delivery of this programme.

    You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops, simulated practice, peer sessions, tutorials and scenario-based learning.

    Placements will include weekends, early mornings, evenings and night work to ensure a full range of practice experiences. You will be responsible for travel and parking costs while on placement.

    How will I be assessed?

    You will be assessed through a variety of mechanisms, including written, oral and practical assessments, that are designed to evaluate your knowledge and assess your ability to apply this understanding to the professional standards and proficiencies.

    Assessments vary from Dragons’ Den style presentations where you will engage stakeholders and academic staff in quality improvement ideas to a written exploration of a condition or disease of your choice.

    Some assessments will be undertaken in practice settings, supported by qualified practitioners and academic staff.

    Who will be teaching me?

    The programme team comprises research-active professionals within the field of nursing and registered paramedics. Most importantly service users, carers and their families will be involved in facilitating your learning so that you gain an understanding of the impact care has on individual groups.
