This blended learning package is suitable for practice nurses requiring an annual immunisation update as recommended by the Royal College of Nursing and Public Health England.  It aims to provide an update for childhood and other national campaign vaccinations including flu, pneumococcal, shingles and COVID.  It is unsuitable for nurses who have not completed an immunisation for new starters course.

Five great reasons to choose this course:

It has been specially prepared to meet a need during COVID-19 restrictions on face-to-face updates and reflects new ways of working and learning.

Unlike standard online update courses which are entirely self-directed and self-assessed, this course provides the opportunity to ask the tutor questions and address your own learning points.

The online pre-reading can be accessed at any convenient time and does not have to be done in one sitting.

Your webinar tutorial (a range of dates and times are available) will give you the opportunity to network with other practice nurses and you can contribute to the discussion in a live forum.

If you enjoy the course, you can get £60 off one of our distance learning courses using the coupon code in the electronic pack.

I really enjoyed today's session. It was very informative and easy to digest. I have attended many immunisation updates and this was by far the best.
