CPD courses are particularly useful to enhance and update nursing knowledge and competencies. These courses are offered on the Blended Learning platform free to our clinical partners. Our first course in the series is the Preceptorship course for Nurses, which is NMBI approved. This course prepares preceptors for their role of supervising and assessing nursing students while on clinical placements.

At present this course is only open to our link clinical partners.


CPD courses are a great way to refresh your knowledge and enhance your teaching and learning. The courses consist of online lessons, forum contributions and reflective learning logs. We also offer additional readings and resources to participants for further research and development.

To secure your place on a course, select Buy course under the relevant course and choose the date you would like to study it. You may purchase one course or multiple courses.
