MSc Professional Practice (General Practice Nursing)
The MSc Professional Practice (General Practice Nursing) is designed for mid-career GPNs who want to progress their careers and is a really flexible alternative for established GPNs who may not want to commit to a full MSc straightaway or may not want to follow a career as an ACP. The MSc is online and flexible which allows nurses to study at a pace that suits them on a modular basis if they prefer. This avoids the commitment of signing up to a full MSc from the start.
There is a wide choice of modules so GPNs can create a bespoke course that is tailored towards their specific interests and career aspirations. Potential career pathways are developing a specialist interest/ becoming a lead within the practice for a specific area of practice nursing; taking up a strategic or leadership role within the PCN or ICS; exploring a clinical academic role. Non-medical prescribing can be taken as part of the MSc and can be credited in if already undertaken.
