Course summary

This CertHE Healthcare Practice is your first step towards studying a nursing degree. Learning in a simulated hospital environment, this vocational healthcare degree will give you the foundation clinical and nursing skills to progress into further nursing studies and you will benefit from the industry experience of the qualified nurses who teach the degree programme. You will study topics such as psychology, sociology and safeguarding, giving you a foundation knowledge in nursing. This course has been validated by health professionals and has links to the CQC. You will benefit from guest lectures from organisations such as the NHS Social Work Team, Marie Curie, CQC and Parkinsons UK and undertake live briefs from industry.
