“I would highly recommend the MSc Infection, Prevention and Control to any nurse (or AHP) wishing to enhance their knowledge and clinical expertise in this area. The content was fascinating and stimulating, challenging my critical thinking and enabling me to use contemporary evidence to look objectively at clinical practice.”
