Welcome to Nursing Times e-learning


New and improved NT Learning system coming soon

We are delighted to announce a host of new features and functionalities coming soon within Nursing Times Learning

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is it? An expanding collection of online learning units on key nursing topics, written and reviewed by nursing experts, which take an average of two hours to complete.
  • What’s in a unit? Units include an evidence-based review with links to key documents and guidance, case scenarios to help you apply your learning to practice, and multiple-choice tests to assess your knowledge before and after the unit.
  • What do I get? On successfully completing learning unit, you can download a personalised certificate to add to your professional portfolio, ready for revalidation. The certificate gives your score and the unit learning objectives, and equates to two hours’ CPD. You can retake units at any time to increase your score or to refresh your knowledge.
  • Why do it? Nursing Times Learning units be used as part of your required CPD, and to demonstrate to your manager or potential employers that you take your CPD seriously.

Are all your patients adequately hydrated?
