About this program

Advanced Practice (Nursing) MSc

The MSc Advanced Practice (Nursing) provides registered nurses with opportunities to expand knowledge and skills personally and professionally, to practice both autonomously and collaboratively in a defined area of advanced nursing practice, meeting national health policy reform in addressing population healthcare needs. This programme was developed in collaboration within a Consortium that includes 5 universities; UCD, UCC, NUIG, TCD, and UL.

The part-time Level 9 programme offers a range of modules supporting the development of an advanced practitioner, who is innovative at assessing and managing risk; has responsibility for decisions made, is research active, is person centred, an interconnected team worker and patient advocate. Theory and practice are integrated throughout the programme. On completion, students will be eligible to apply for registration as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) and a Registered Nurse Prescriber (RNP) with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI).
