Online Nursing courses

Our online nursing courses make it easier for you to stay registered, competent and current. From accredited top-up degrees, which attract nurses from all over the world, to short CPD modules which are easy to fit around shift patterns.

With an online course you can study when and where it suits you, and learning online can still be an interactive experience. You’ll have access to virtual classrooms, online discussion forums, and on the perioperative practice degree, even a virtual reality platform which simulates challenging clinical scenarios.

Our online top-up degrees in nursing and perioperative practice allow you to upgrade your level 5 qualification to a full bachelors degree in just one–two years of part-time study. They have also been accredited or endorsed by the relevant professional body so you know they are high quality.
