Course content

Our Sexual and Reproductive course combines theory and practice with placements. It will offer you, as a registered nurse or midwife, the opportunity to study sexual and reproductive health theory and apply new knowledge and skills to clinical practice.

Sexual health is a national priority in Scotland. Many traditional family planning and genito-urinary services have integrated in order to provide a holistic, one-stop-shop approach to care.

Clinical practice is integrated with the theoretical component of the programme and may be started after the first six days of theory. Health boards allocate clinical placements to students and clinic times vary depending on the health boards.

The focus is on working in partnership with clients to promote excellence in sexual and reproductive healthcare.
