The demand for skilled nurses across the world continues to grow, as do the demands placed on those already within that profession. In order to thrive within nursing, a commitment to ongoing personal and professional development is a must. This  part-time, online nursing course has been developed to allow students to gain new skills and knowledge alongside their existing responsibilities as a nurse. It is particularly designed for those hoping to progress to senior nursing roles. It combines healthcare modules with a grounding in management and leadership. Students will improve the care they offer to their patients, as well as improving their ability to manage sensitive situations in different healthcare contexts – and to improve their management skills for the benefit of their position, organisation or region. A key part of the course will include producing a professional practice portfolio which will provide proof of their autonomy and their ability to develop their skills through reflective practice. Essex Online offers a range of optional modules to enhance their knowledge in certain areas of theoretical practice, such as: the management of disease, including pathophysiology and pharmacology; the principles of pain management; the theoretical knowledge required to support the management of diabetes care both in primary and secondary healthcare settings; the role of nurses in meeting the needs of vulnerable individuals, groups and communities; the scientific concepts underpinning infection control and prevention; contemporary models and strategies to guide the design of effective health promotion activities; practical leadership skills underpinned by a critical appreciation of leadership theory.
