A new online masters course for occupational health nurses across Europe was launched at the FOHNEU congress.
The MMedSci in OH nursing has been developed by the University of Sheffield in partnership with academic bodies across Europe, and will allow qualified OH nurses to study in their own time supported by an online tutor.
The organisers say the course will be completed in three to five years. The first programme begins in September 2008.
Jan Maw, nursing lecturer at Sheffield, said: “The evidence is based on reflective and evidence-based practice. Fundamental to it is it’s about looking at practice and taking it forward.”
Some UK practitioners have expressed concerns that the course is not accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council because it needed to be applicable to practice and regulations in all European Union countries.
