The concept of "Advanced Nursing Practice" (ANP) varies in definition and implementation depending on the country and healthcare system. However, the main goal is always to expand nursing practice and enable broader or more specialized tasks for highly qualified nurses. The Master's program in Advanced Nursing Practice prepares qualified health and nursing care professionals for these demanding clinical tasks and leadership roles. They become experts in specialized areas of nursing (e.g., wound care, continence and stoma care, care for individuals with dementia) and acquire advanced methodological competencies to enhance clinical nursing practice and nursing quality in various settings.

Studying Advanced Nursing Practice means elevating expertise to a higher level, achieving greater autonomy in practice, and optimizing patient care in innovative ways.
