It will allow you to explore the key aspects of advanced practice and modules relating to the four pillars of advancing practice. You'll gain the skills and knowledge to work in any healthcare setting and meet the requirements of your professional body in relation to accountability and proficiency.
The program provides the opportunity for apprentices to engage in a critical exploration of the Advanced Practice agenda in healthcare practice with emphasis on leadership, research, education and clinical exposure.
