If you would like to train to become a nurse (adult nursing) and are already working as a healthcare support worker/healthcare assistant, this unique practice-based qualification is for you. It enables you to stay in work while you study - provided you have the support of your employer and suitable practice can be agreed. On successful completion of your studies, you'll be eligible to apply for registration as a qualified nurse.
This qualification develops your learning in four main areas:
- Knowledge and understanding
- Cognitive skills
- Practical and professional skills
- Key skills
The level and depth of your learning gradually increases as you work through the qualification. You'll be supported throughout by the OU's unique style of teaching and assessment - which includes a personal tutor to guide and comment on your work; top quality course texts; e-learning resources like podcasts, interactive media and online materials; tutorial groups and community forums.
