Course content

Designed to provide flexible continuing professional development to a widening group of UK and internationally-based nurses, this course aims to develop nurses’ contribution to the quality of care both nationally and internationally.

You will consider the influence of the global public health agenda on the role of the nurse and examine the complex social and political nature of nursing, health and social care, while working towards a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or MSc Nursing Studies.
