What nurses say about our units:

"Although I did have previous knowledge of these subjects, I didn't realise what gaps I had in my understanding until I had taken the pre-course tests. Working through the case studies was a great way of learning as I was able to apply this directly to my patients." Lisa Dryden, Staff Nurse, Weston Area Health Trust

“The quality was excellent. Clear and understandable information coupled with the practice questions. Very convenient…could do it anywhere!! Learnt the basics for the subject and helped me to understand why the information required is so important. The certificate was useful to prove that I had a baseline knowledge.”

-Gina Seymour, professional development adviser, Essex

“The online arterial blood gas interpretation unit was excellent. It was clear and concise yet still covered all the important basics needed in practice. Even for someone interpreting blood gases daily it still reminded me of things I’d forgot and gave reassurance my knowledge base is sound. I will be recommending it to my colleagues.”

-Joe Annandale, respiratory nurse specialist, Hywel Dda Health Board, Wales

“I found the unit reinforced the knowledge I possessed but also, and more importantly, I gained increased knowledge which I have been able to use to treat my patients with these symptoms more effectively. This learning experience was invaluable and not too time consuming."

-Irene Shaw, specialist support practitioner level 7, Nottinghamshire

“For each module my pre-test knowledge was just over 75% and post knowledge increased to 95%, which just goes to prove that performing weekly/daily tasks, you can skip/forget things. So I found them all really useful for testing myself and then reinforcing my knowledge base.”

-Maureen Sheila Varilone, nurse practitioner, Worcestershire
