Nursing theory can be pretty daunting but our new online learning programme will help you develop your clinical knowledge
No matter how good your lecturers are, there are always times during your pre-registration course when you are on your own. When it comes to writing up your assignments and essays or trying to absorb key information, there’s no one to hold your hand. And when you’re trying to transfer theoretical knowledge into practice on a clinical placement, your mentor may not be on hand to help and other staff may be just too busy.
That’s where Nursing Times Learning can offer some support. Our new online learning programme focuses on the theoretical information you need to know on a topic. This gives you the foundation you need to work through a series of case scenarios that help you understand how your learning can be applied in practice.
The units are supplemented by live links to all the key texts that are associated with those subjects, taking you straight to the full document if it’s freely available. Where full texts can only be seen if you have an Athens account or have subscribed to the publication, links go to an abstract. That can save you serious time in searching the literature and evaluating the quality of texts you find.
Our programme currently has 30 units; if you use the references as well as the core material, these take an average of two hours to work through. You can take a baseline assessment before you start and again when you’ve finished, so you can see how much you’re learning. Once you complete a unit, print out your personalised certificate and add it to your portfolio.
Our learning units currently include arterial blood gas interpretation; The Liverpool Care Pathway; dysphagia; and learning and studying efficiently. Each one costs just £10+VAT, but Nursing Times subscribers get five units free - that’s £50-worth of free learning.
