A course with high professional standards
That’s largely due to the fact that we work hard to listen to employers in the health and social care sector when designing and updating this course. There has been significant consultation with Strategic Health Authorities, stakeholders and regulatory bodies. That means you can rely on this course to refresh your skills and keep you up to date with current practice, as well as enhancing your employability.
There’s room in your life for online study
Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures. As a nurse it would be very difficult to work any other way due to the demanding nature of the profession, so this type of study is ideal.
