Overview

This Mastering Professional Practice module is designed for postgraduate students who are registered health care professionals. It aims to extend your understanding of professional practice beyond that of competence to one of mastery.

In this module we'll examine the nature of professional practice, including the concepts and theoretical perspectives of your own profession. You'll analyse and debate key theories and issues in the advancement of your professional practice. You'll be able to blend this knowledge with your own experiences to arrive at a new way of knowing and enacting your professional role.

You'll be supported in the enhancement of self-awareness and personal/professional growth through the use of strategies that include reflective practice and critical thinking. You will be facilitated in analysing and debating real issues from your practice, using student-centred learning approaches such as online action learning and online group discussion.

You will be assessed 100% through coursework.

This module is compulsory for the awards of PG Cert/PG Dip/MSc in Nursing Studies.
