Feedback from the first cohort includes:

The course has covered every aspect of general practice nursing and has been a fantastic foundation for all those new to practice nursing. i feel extremely lucky to have had such an opportunity.

Every teaching session has been informative and interactive with each candidate being given the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences related to the topics being discussed.

The lecturers and speakers not only taught me valuable clinical skills and theory, but also helped to build my confidence as a practice nurse and member of the primary care multidisciplinary team.
