What is this course about?

The Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing Education aims to enhance the professional development of registered nurses who have recognised a need to gain further knowledge and skills in the discipline of education.

The nurse as educator is well recognised by the profession as an essential role pertaining to all nurses.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing Education develops this role and relates it to all settings where nurses teach. It is therefore applicable to patient teaching, nursing education, clinical education, continuing and in-service health professional education as well as community health education.
