Teaching and learning
The programme runs over one semester and consists of timetabled face-to-face sessions, self-directed and work-based learning. Support is provided via either tutorials, email or the virtual learning environment.
You will be required to attend taught sessions at Liverpool John Moores University Monday to Friday 9.00am - 4.30pm in the first week only. After that you do not have to attend as the majority of this course will be distance learning.
You will be a registered nurse, working in a general practice setting. For Level 7 students, it is anticipated that you will have completed a degree.
The Level 7 Fundamentals of General Nursing programme is assessed via portfolio.
This Continuing Professional Development module is stand-alone and is not within a wider award framework.
