This practical course uses a work-based learning approach to develop the higher-level skills that will lead to advanced practitioner status.
This is a challenging and intense programme and allows experienced neonatal intensive care nurses to become qualified advanced neonatal nurse practitioners.
This 12 month course requires a high level of commitment to succeed and you will move from a nursing to a medical rota immediately upon qualification.
You will achieve a number of clinical competencies such as advanced resuscitation skills, insertion of percutaneous long lines, insertion of umbilical and venous catheters, airway management and intubation and chest drains.
The programme may be commissioned by Health Education North West to meet the needs of a modernizing NHS. Upon completion you will be eligible for a non-medical advanced practitioner in Neonates to work within a junior medical rota.
