Course Overview

In order to meet the current challenges faced in General Practice, the capacity and capability of the primary care workforce must be developed and in particular those of the General Practice Nurse (GPN). However, most of these skills are not part of pre-registration nurse training, nor are they found in nurses working in other settings and yet there is no mandatory education for GPNs.This programme is of 9 months' duration, for nurses working within General Practice Nursing settings. The knowledge and skills acquired during the module are in line with and are underpinned by the RCGP framework, RCGP (2012) General Practice Nursing Competencies.
