Programme start: January and September 2023
This programme is designed in partnership with clinical experts at the forefront of oncology and cancer care. It is aimed at nurses and other health care professionals who provide care for people with a cancer diagnosis in a diverse range of settings including acute, primary care and community. Whilst there are some mandatory modules, students can tailor their programme of learning to their interested area of oncology and undertake the Master’s level study on a part-time basis.
This two-year degree apprenticeship programme provides health care practitioners with the opportunity to develop the advanced skills necessary to independently manage holistic episodes of physical and mental healthcare in a range of different settings. This can be in acute, primary and emergency environments in different healthcare locations amongst the public, independent, private and charitable sectors.
The programme is mapped to the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) Standards for Advanced Clinical Practitioner. It also aligns with the Multi-Professional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice (HEE, 2017) so that it includes the four pillars of: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research, as well as providing opportunities to develop core capabilities and clinical competence related to a specific area of work.
