Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care

Short courses aimed at developing expertise and improving patient care to help you fulfil your potential and boost your career prospects.

As a student on one of our short courses led by the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care, you’ll be taught by leaders in the field. Everything you learn will be up to speed with the latest changes in practice and help you effectively approach the spectrum of challenges you face every day.

Flexible learning that fits in with you

Fitting in education can be a challenge when working as a healthcare practitioner. But we’ve designed courses that offer the flexibility you need to study around your commitments and slot learning into your current lifestyle. Our work-based learning option gives you the chance to achieve an academic qualification, without putting your career on hold. You’ll learn from your experiences in the field and sharpen skills vital to your role.

Continuous learning, lifelong development

Taking a short course at King’s can be just the beginning of your professional and academic development. Our short courses are individual modules, which make up core and optional components of our degree and diploma courses. When you pass a module, you will receive academic credit, which is a way of quantifying and recognising learning whenever and wherever it is achieved. The amount of credit you receive will vary based on the length of the module. If you decide after taking one of our modules that you want to study a degree or diploma course, then you could use the credit you’ve achieved to count towards your overall credits for your chosen degree or diploma course. This is known as recognition of prior learning (RPL). You can find out more about how it works for degree or diploma courses in the Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care on our webpages.
