Our Clinical Skills Review course is three hours long and takes place in a classroom with no more than 10 students to ensure each individual gets the necessary attention and support. During the program, you'll receive expert coaching on a mixture of the hard and soft skills that matter most for nurses.

Practical Skills for Nurses

Nursing is one profession where hands-on experience is the best way to learn. However, knowing what to do in the moment, when tensions and the stakes are high, requires confidence. The best way to develop confidence in nursing techniques is to learn about them intensively and practice, visualize and repeat your responses to high-pressure health care situations.

This course helps reinforce what you've learned in your nursing degree, giving you an additional layer of knowledge and expertise. You can take what you've learned and apply it directly to daily life on the ward as a practicing nurse.

Soft Nursing Skills

Nursing is a demanding yet highly rewarding career, and professionals in this field need to be kind, caring and excellent at communication while having a variety of technical and specialty skills. Let's take a look at some of the soft skills we'll help you brush up on in our hands-on course:
