The General Practice Nurse Training Programme

The General Practice Nurse Training Programme

About the Course

This online programme is an essential resource for any nurse new to general practice, as well as a useful refresher generally. It provides introductory level learning resources and self-assessment questionnaires across a range of topics, covering baseline skills for nursing in general practice. It represents the building blocks of an educational pathway to support a career in general practice nursing.

Included in the programme are two full-day workshops led by experienced practice nurse facilitators, who will support your progression through the units.

The cost of the programme, including the two workshops and dedicated support, is £850 plus VAT.

The programme will help you to identify learning needs appropriate to your role in practice and direct you to further opportunities for continued professional development. The programme is written by practice nurses for practice nurses, with the aim of being totally relevant and user-friendly.

For full programme information, please see the User Guide.

Londonwide LMCs have produced guidance regarding changes to the Code and introduction of revalidation for nurses from April 2016. This important guidance is for use by all nurses as well as GP principals and practice managers.
