Transitioning to General Practice Nursing – Fully Funded Courses Available

If you’re a nurse considering making the move from secondary care to a primary care setting – or if you’re newly-qualified – you may be wondering how to take that first step into general practice.

What experience and qualifications do you need? How much will it cost to re-train? What opportunities are available to you locally once your training is complete?

You may be aware that there are a number of General Practice Nursing courses available across the county and surrounding areas – developed to advance your knowledge, broaden your practical, clinical and interpersonal skills and increase your confidence to work independently.

Courses vary in length but may be suitable for either newly qualified nurses or those that have been working in general practice for up to a year. Course requirements and format may also differ slightly. However, did you know that some courses offer full, or part, funding – with some also offering bursaries?

Later this year the University of Essex will be offering a fully funded 3-month Fundamentals of General Practice course. Designed for qualified nurses new to working within a general practice environment – or looking to get into general practice – to provide a solid primary care nursing base to build upon and further develop your fundamental skills for effective care of patients.

More specific details about this course are on the way. Keep an eye out on our news pages and social media for more information.

To find out if you’re eligible for funding, chat to your Educational Lead or get in touch today and we’ll point you in the right direction.
