Pre-requisites: Normally must be qualified with a relevant first degree in nursing 2:2 or above from an approved HIE (or demonstrate the ability to study at degree level)

Aims/Description: This unit is designed to provide neonatal practitioners who are qualified in neonatal practice with the opportunity to undertake further study towards becoming an advanced neonatal nurse practitioner. This unit is completed whilst undertaking the first 2 units thus creating an opportunity to clinically develop their mastery in advanced clinical skills whilst integrating theory with practice to further advance their understanding of their new role as it unfolds in practice. This unit will be delivered alongside the paeditric counterpart and it is felt that sharing this module with both programmes will give the practitioners an opportunity to reflect on the health needs of children from birth to transition to adulthood.
