"I found the programme particularly useful in building my confidence not only as a GPN but as a NQN too. The course offered me learning & training opportunities and helped me build on my foundation of knowledge. I now feel equipped to further enhance in my role to more senior positions within primary care. My mentor was a key support system throughout the programme."
