  • 11 Comments

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

NT_learning_logo

Having listened to user feedback, we are upgrading our learning management system to enhance your learning experience and help you to prepare for the new system of nurse revalidation to be introduced in 2016.

These changes will be accessible to you in August 2015.

 

New and updated online learning units

Nursing Times Learning aims to support your CPD and improve the consistency, quality and delivery of care given to patients.

We have updated or replaced our most popular units on fundamental aspects of nursing care, and these will be available from the launch of the new system. Over the following months more units will be updated or replaced and added to the system, and new units will be added.

The following units will be available in the new system when it launches in August.

  • Catheter care
  • Clinical record-keeping
  • Constipation: management and treatment
  • Dehydration
  • Dementia, delirium and depression
  • Diarrhoea: assessment and management
  • Discharge planning: getting it right for the patient
  • Drug calculations in practice
  • End-of-life care
  • Falls prevention and management
  • Liver disease: risk factors and treatment
  • Nutrition screening
  • Patient isolation: transmission-based precautions
  • Pressure ulcer prevention
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Venous thromboembolism prevention

Learning Passport

The new Learning Passport will enable you to record all the events and activities that count towards your revalidation requirements, and store them in a single place. This will give you easy access to evidence your CPD and to demonstrate that you are adhering by standards of practice in the NMC Code in order to re-register. In addition, you will be able to store all the activities you need to complete as part of your revalidation including:

  • Evidence of 450 practice hours
  • Evidence of 40 hours of CPD
  • Practice-related feedback
  • Written reflections on the new Revised Code, your CPD and practice-related feedback
  • A record of a professional development discussion with another NMC registrant covering their reflections on the above
  • Health and character declaration
  • Profession indemnity arrangement
  • Third-party confirmation

Mobile, multi-device learning

The new version of Nursing Times Learning will work on all devices, adapting to fit whatever your screen size. That means you can use it anywhere with internet access, on your smartphone, laptop or tablet device at your own pace and convenience.

What do I need to do?

You must complete any learning units you have already started by 1st July 2015. Please ensure any incomplete learning units are finished to ensure your records are transferred to the new system. Partially completed learning units will not be moved over to the new system.

All your records of learning which you have completed will automatically be transferred to the new system.

If you have any questions please contact the Nursing Times Learning Team at nursingtimeslearning@emap.com

  • I completed two courses and now can't access my learning log to print the last one's certificate. It seems everything is being updated and the 'old' system is no longer available. The courses are very good but the website s a mess. I've done a whole course for nothing now as it's slipped away in the muddle of this excuse for a website. A total waste of money. Very disappointed.

  • Hi Cherry,<br/><br/>Thank you for your earlier email. Great to see that we have managed to resolve this.<br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/>Nursing Times

  • I have an uncompleted course. I had no email to warn me of a deadline. On top of that I paid for additional courses which I cannot event start. If I didn't know better it looks like a scam.

  • We are sorry to hear how inconvenienced you have been by our change in system. We emailed all users earlier this month to communicate the change, however we appreciate that emails can easily be missed or find their way into junk mail folders.<br/><br/>As you have uncompleted courses that you would like to finish, please email us at nursingtimeslearning@emap.com and we will make and send you a temporary link to access your learning log where you can complete the units.<br/><br/>Any certificates for completed units will automatically transfer over from your learning log to our new system. However, we recommend that you save and print any new certificates you earn as there may be a delay of up to 4 weeks for these to move across.<br/><br/>Apologies again for the inconvenience.<br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/>Nursing Times

  • Where is the news site ?! -I previously used the link for training but it takes you nowhere. Please sort this out PDQ.

  • Hi,<br/><br/>I'm sorry to hear of the inconvenience our change in system has caused and realise how frustrating this must be, particularly with an impending deadline.<br/><br/>We've had to take the system down completely as we are moving to an entirely new system so need to rebuild and test everything. Unfortunately it's not simply a case of changing the existing units.<br/><br/>However, we are still able to access your certificates. Please email us at nursingtimeslearning@emap.com and let us know which certificates you need and we will email them across to you as a priority.<br/><br/>The new learning system is anticipated to be up and running within a week, we can't give an exact date at this time in case there are unforeseen delays.<br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/>Nursing Times

  • I am so dissappointed as well, as I paid for the whole year and have unfinished work left and there was no warning as to say they were going to do this.
    I would be happy if they had email all users to say this was going to be done. Also, is technology that bad with yourselves that you could not fix, add or remodel the site with whatever units without taking it all down as I did not get to print all my certificates either am very upset. just hope I have not lost what I have done already or else ask that my money be refunded.

  • We're sorry to hear that our change in system has caused you this disruption. We emailed all users earlier in July, however we appreciate that emails can easily be missed or find their way into junk mail folders.<br/><br/>NT Learning is moving over onto an entirely new system so unfortunately we are not able to simply update the existing units. We are currently rigorously testing the newly built system to ensure we are providing you with a quality product, we anticipate that we will be in a position to launch within a week.<br/><br/>In the meantime, we want to ensure that anyone who didn't receive our email about completing units is still able to do so. Please drop us an email at nursingtimeslearning@emap.com and we will build and send you a temporary link to access your learning log.<br/><br/>Apologies again for the inconvenience this has caused.<br/><br/>Kind regards,<br/>Nursing Times<br/>

  • When does the new nursing times learning programme come into action for us to start some learning units?

  • Yet again I have to complain about the on-line learning courses. I started the Record Keeping course and wished to save it to return to later. I followed the directions but returned to find all my work gone. I've decided to give your courses a miss in future.
    In addition, for future reference, it's Naloxone not Naxolone which is spelt incorrectly throughout that particular course. The mis-spelling of drugs does not inspire much confidence.

  • I refer to my comment of the 29th July which the Editor seems to think is resolved. I haven't said it was resolved and it is not. The 2 hours CPD I should have been accredited with has not been added to my learning passport. Could this please be amended. To clarify, there should now be 4 hours for 2 courses. Catheter Care and Falls Prevention.
