Overseas Nursing Programme

Course Description

This course facilitates international nurses to build on their prior learning, knowledge, skills and experience, enabling them to transfer and apply knowledge and understanding in a UK health care context, acknowledging the social, cultural and political factors affecting the delivery of care.

It encourages students to think critically and analytically thus allowing you to make sound clinical judgments across a range of differing professional and care delivery contexts, safely and competently so assume the responsibilities and accountabilities necessary for public protection. Successful completion will lead to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

The course is part-time and runs for three to six months depending on the NMC requirements and considerations for registration.
