Not what I expected. The content was good but I didn’t feel like I had enough support or guidance with my studies.

Student review
Though I’m still studying, the course has been useful. With nursing, it seems that your best learning experiences are actually during placements but the staff are pretty good as far as guiding students & helping you through the coursework. The only main issue I have is the inclusion of assessed group presentations- being in the online course, students are scattered geographically & coordinating a cohesive presentation is nigh impossible.
