The course is mainly delivered online and a range methods are used, including:

  • access to individual reading lists
  • discussion boards
  • web conferences
  • web based activities and quizzes
  • classroom based teaching and tutorials (only for the partial face-to-face locally delivered modules)

You will normally take four modules, one of which must include the core module (Introduction to Research Based Practice). This module is invaluable for nurses to apply evidence-based practice to their professional context.


Our assessment methods include:

  • essays 
  • reports
  • online discussion activities and debates
  • quizzes
  • development of presentations
  • portfolio

We're testing a new way of showing modules on the website

This list should give you a good idea of which modules you can take, however it may change before you begin your course, and may not show all available modules.
