Advance Nurse Practice & Leadership – Level 7

Gati Wandera (RN; Pg. Dip)
Course Convenor & Advisor

The Advance Nursing Practice and Leadership course is an innovative Level 7 (equivalent to SCQF 11) programme designed to meet the needs of nurses, midwifes and non-health professionals to facilitate their progression to higher levels within their profession or organisation. Fundamental to the programme is the premise that practitioners need to be aware of contemporary issues in their field of practice, be able to analyse their potential outcomes and consequences, and decide how to react. They do not have to be expert in all areas of nursing but they need to possess a general awareness of what specialist facilities and services exist, and how they can assist in carrying out that role. The programme includes contemporary topics reflecting key issues within the 21st century health environment, as well as latest developments in leadership and management.

Practice – Led MBA & PhD

We are offering opportunities for potential students to do a practice-led MBA with TSMR. Candidates will draw on their professional experience to develop a thesis. You need the requisite qualification to come onto the programme.

The aim of this programme is to find a novel way of recognising the work of both executives and non-executives in public and private sectors. The structure of the programme is hybrid rather than academic. Guided by experienced academic advisors candidate’s will be required to focus on their area of expertise and experience and how it can be used to shape national development i.e. making a contribution to professional knowledge.

Both programmes confer “Dr” or “MBA” on participants who successfully complete the programme. However, the professional doctorate does not aim at academic career, which will require intensive research and extended period of study.

Applications are accepted throughout the year. Admissions to the programme are on rolling basis. As soon as we receive your application with all the necessary documentations and evidence, an admission committee will evaluate them and advice the candidate accordingly.
