This is a unique opportunity to update your nursing knowledge and practice. We provide local placements that are tailored to meet your specific requirements, on a full or part-time basis. You will be in a supportive environment that will build your confidence, enabling you to develop as a safe and effective practitioner. 

You will study either Adult, Mental Health or Child Nursing and focus on the four 'pillars’'of the Code: prioritise people, practice effectively, preserve safety and promote professionalism and trust.

You will explore the influence of health and social care policy relevant to nursing practice and reflect critically on your own performance and professional development.
