Content

The field of nursing is ever changing and increasingly challenging. This programme will equip you with the skills for self-development to become leaders and competent decision-makers, professional nurses who understand the primacy of care, the promotion of health and the imperative of evidence to underpin best practice and how this is acquired.

The programme offers a variety of courses which reflect the key concerns in developing an effective and flexible workforce, with the ability to embrace and generate new approaches to care.

It aims, through a process of flexible and open learning, to develop self-directed and reflective nurses who have the potential to be future leaders in advancing nursing.

You can exit at the end of 9 months with PgCert Advancing Nursing Practice.

You can exit at the end of 21 months with PgDip Advancing Nursing Practice.
