It’s hard to imagine a more dynamic, fast-changing sector than health in the UK. Innovations in practice, policy developments and new standards for treatment and care provide constant challenges and opportunities to professionals working in different care settings – and none more so than Nurses, who are in a unique position to make a difference.
The Open University offers exciting learning opportunities with various programmes of study within Nursing and Healthcare – whether you are a Healthcare Support Worker (HCSW) or a Registered Nurse looking to progress your career. Flexible study arrangements fit in with your work and home life, so you can carry on earning while you learn:
Our curriculum is developed and delivered by an expert multi-disciplinary team in partnership with service users and carers. You’ll study alongside other students from a wide range of backgrounds and hear from many more as you work through the rich multi-media learning materials. And at the heart of everything you learn will be the people who use health services, ensuring maximum impact on practice and patient care.
Student Toni Kingston and her employer discuss the positive impact OU study has had on the department and service users, through practice-based learning.
