The course provides students with the opportunity to work collaboratively with peers as well as fostering independence, self-direction and self-reliance. These reflect the ways in which health care professionals work, in order to be effective in delivering individualised, safe, high quality health care. The course also introduces new concepts in health care, which students can take back to their own areas of practice to influence change.
The course aims to build students confidence, so that they can articulate ideas clearly to colleagues and challenge others viewpoints and actions when necessary.
A major feature of this course is that the qualification is recognised by nursing councils in other countries including the Nigerian Nursing and Midwifery Council and the education authority in Nigeria and has been used by students seeking promotion in their nursing careers in Nigeria.
