Distance learning through the OU-RCN strategic alliance
The Open University (OU) and the RCN have joined forces to encourage greater participation in education and training. Between us, we offer a wider range of courses that can make a difference to your career and to those for whom you care.
Our flexible work-based learning fits with busy work and home commitments, provides high levels of learning support and the opportunity to learn as you earn. The OU is recognised as a world leader in supported distance learning.
Our learning opportunities include courses for health care assistants, routes into nursing with our pre-registration nursing programme, a newly designed top-up degree in nursing practice for registered nurses, as well as postgraduate level courses and awards. You can also choose courses for personal interest, such as creative writing, digital photography or sport.
Most courses can be studied as stand-alone modules as well as part of an award.
The OU offers more than 500 courses. To find out more, please visit www.openuniversity.co.uk/rcn.
