Composition of the course
The content of this programme aims to build on the skills and experience that you will already have as a qualified nurse.
The programme will commence in September 2016 and the year will be split into three academic terms; Michaelmas, September-December; Lent, January-March; Trinity, April-July.
The programme will embrace student-centred learning and will use a range of teaching and learning strategies including keynote lectures, discussions, student-led seminars, and formative presentations involving group work, which will be peer and tutor assessed.
Learning will take place through research and inquiry based approaches to enable you to develop the knowledge, skills and qualities that are outlined in the programme aims. The use of technology-enhanced learning will complement face to face teaching to offer you a more flexible type of learning. The use of Blackboard, as a virtual learning tool, is a further useful resource that will form a major part of your learning.
You will be expected to be an active participant in the learning process, and will be encouraged to contribute your ideas and experiences throughout the programme, critically reflecting on your own and others performance throughout.
