About this course

This is a part-time course for the graduate health and social care practitioner wanting to obtain a level 6 academic and professional qualification in the cardiac care speciality pathway. 

You should have a minimum of one year's post-registration experience and be in practice for at least 20 hours per week before applying for the course.

The course enables you to develop your expertise, so that you are prepared to confidently take on roles working with cardiac patients and their families. 

Coronary heart disease (CHD) remains the main cause of premature death in the UK and many patients are surviving the initial cardiac event, but requiring further investigation, intervention and continuing support for many years. The modules offered within this course address the diversity of issues affecting patients in the UK. 

We are known for our flexible approaches to practice-based learning, with course durations and intensities that can be adapted to your individual needs and outside commitments. 

The values of the NHS constitution are embedded in our curriculum; where patients come first in everything the NHS does, and include respect and dignity, compassion and working together for patients. 

Our high quality teaching and research are renowned, and have an applied focus. We have established strong links with critical care practice educators to ensure the provision of support and guidance both within the university and in clinical practice.   

We have a dedicated team of academic staff who are actively engaged in internationalising the nursing and midwifery curriculum, and we offer all our students the chance to experience practice in another country.

Note: Please contact us directly for exact tuition fees and for information on the funding available for this course.
