Module overview

This module forms the 'capstone' of the taught component of the Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (ANNP) programme. You will be supported to explore in depth the meaning of advanced practice and its associated concepts (such as specialist practice and expert practice), and to critically consider the theory practice links between the extensive literature debating these concepts and neonatal practice. It will also enable you to critically explore the four ‘pillars’ of advanced practice i.e. advanced clinical practice, education, research and leadership, and to evidence and critically reflect upon your transition to an ANNP in relation to these pillars. The module also equips you to be formally assessed in practice as an ANNP against the four pillars, so enabling you to demonstrate the higher level of autonomy which the role requires, and your ability to make clinical judgements in situations that are complex or uncertain. To achieve this you will undertake assessments both clinical and theoretical which are based on the capabilities published by Health Education England (2017).
