Career opportunities

Most students complete the course part-time while working in their advanced practice roles.

Advanced clinical practitioners have made a positive impact on emergency and urgent care, surgical care, sub-acute wards, primary care, and forensic mental health settings to name a few examples.

It is widely accepted that these practitioners will play an increasingly important role within the NHS, particularly given the national supply and skills shortages in the medical and non-medical workforce.

Accrediting organisations

The General Pharmaceutical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council have validated the Independent Prescribing unit, which is also available as a standalone short course.
