Course contentOn successful completion of the programme, students will be awarded a PDip in Nursing (Orthopaedics). The programme is comprised of six theory/ practice modules. In all modules there is an emphasis on exploring the relevance of module content to practice, similarly practice placements (which occur in student's own settings) allow students to explore "new" knowledge in practice.
The underlying goal of this programme is to provide students with the necessary in-depth knowledge and skills, to enable them to provide expert care for patients and families with orthopaedic conditions.
