Becoming a nurse is the dream of many, but this highly-skilled and incredibly rewarding role is challenging. The Introduction to Nursing Diploma Course eases you in – breaking down the intricacies of the nursing profession.

You’ll learn about the various roles within nursing, the nursing process, essential basic knowledge that every nurse must possess, how specific patients are to be cared for, and the laws and ethical rules nurse practitioners must follow.

Nursing is not a singular profession. You’ll explore the various levels, specialisms, and fields of practice that a career in nursing can take, and be guided through the five-step nursing process that ensures patient care.

We’ll look through the basic knowledge that nurses need to have – examining disease states, pharmacological principles, bacterial and viral risks in healthcare settings, and the various tools and equipment used in the profession.

The Introduction to Nursing Diploma Course guides you in the specialist patient care provided by nurses throughout pregnancy, early childhood, and old age. We’ll also look at health promotion and the role of nurses as wellness ambassadors.

Finally, we’ll examine the laws and ethical rules nurses must follow to ensure patient comfort.

  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of nurses
  • Become familiar with the basic knowledge of nurses
