Course content

This cancer care nursing course will build on your knowledge and understanding of cancer care, developing skills that will aid in pursuing a career within cancer care nursing. It is a modular course, delivered on a flexible, distance learning basis. A new innovation this year is the introduction of online clinical forums, where you can discuss course and practice-related issues with clinical experts from a range of oncology and palliative care settings.

This course was approved by the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) in 2007 and awarded EONS Excellence in Education Award 2008. You can obtain a BSc Cancer Care after completing three core modules: The Nature of Cancer, the Impact of Cancer and Using Research within Cancer Care. You will achieve a BSc (Hons) Cancer Care after successful completion of a further one or two optional modules and a practice-orientated project.

"The Cancer Care course has been the perfect course for me as it relates well to my area of practice. I have been able to fit the studying and assignments around my work, and the online tools have been easy to use. The support I have had from my mentor and lecturer has been invaluable." - Sue Hopkins, BSc Cancer Care
