What you'll do
- Learn from an expert team. The course team are all qualified in the field in which they teach and hold relevant NMC registration (where applicable). Each member of the team has their own specialty and is involved with publishing their work.
- A major strength of the MSc Nursing in General Practice course is the expertise of staff in facilitating shared learning across a range of community disciplines. This leads to the discussion of common issues and concerns, enabling the sharing of good practice.
Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
