I attended your course in November and just thought I’d share my news with you. I have successfully set up an ear irrigation clinic in the private clinic I work in and this is going really well. In addition I have secured a position 2 days a week performing vaccinations…. Absolutely delighted and all due to attending your course. Many thanks.

I can’t recommend the course highly enough. I came from a situation of never having only worked in secondary care. Thanks to you, now I have the confidence, the knowledge and some of the skills to put myself forward for a job in primary care. The speakers were very engaging and easy to listen to, the sessions were about how to do the nursing in practice and I really enjoyed the 3 days. They went so fast! Doing the course was in investment definitely worth doing.

I found the course really useful. Although I had worked previously for many years as a practice nurse, there had been a gap for me as I had spent the last 10 years in secondary care and education. Finding myself back in general practice was a joy, but I definitely needed to refresh my existing skills. In a way the course was like a ‘return to practice’ event and I was so glad to attend. Things evolve and change in nursing all the time and it’s crucial that we all keep our competencies up to date and evidence based – the course meant that I could be confident that my practice was just that. I loved the friendly and informal teaching style and found the environment a positive arena for learning, with great opportunity for lively discussion and debate. I certainly hope my colleagues on the course went on to secure the roles they were hoping for. I would not hesitate to recommend the course to colleagues, new practice nurses and those considering a career move from secondary care.

This course was as refreshing as it was brilliant. The content was exactly what I needed as a new practice nurse, and the tutors were both knowledgeable and approachable. There is no other course like this one available; I highly recommend it. Since completing the course, I have become a valuable team member at a very busy practice, and my nursing career is going from strength to strength.

I loved the course you guys ran last year. I was new to the world of practice nursing having changed from working in a hospital environment. The course covered all the general duties I would be carrying out as well as ear syringing and childhood immunisations, although the lecturer for ear syringing was a little too focused on damage to the tympanic membrane instead of technique. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly with amazing supplies of stationary and refreshments, allowing us to make tea and coffee throughout the day was great as I am a tea addict. Lunch was an added bonus and beautiful sandwiches supplied. You were both respectful of the fact that we were nurses from all backgrounds and on occasion utilised that information. The course content was informative and I still refer back to my notes on occasion. It was a great course in helping me to understand my new role and responsibilities and would recommend anybody new to practice nursing or thinking of becoming one to take your course and I would undertake any additional training with you guys again.

Everyone made to feel very comfortable, we learnt form each other. Excellent course – good – positive.
Fantastic course! High recommend to new practice nurses. The ear care session was excellent – wound care session similar to this would be really valuable. Had a great time studying & munching on food provided… most appreciated with a big smile will recommend the course to fellow colleagues
