Nurses Certificate in Emergency and Critical Care Nursing

NCert (E&CC)

Emergency cases can be some of the most challenging and rewarding patients to deal with in practice.

This programme will increase your knowledge and confidence enabling you to act swiftly and calmly resulting in a positive impact on the clinical outcome of your emergency patients. The final module will enable you to practise some of the techniques in the safe environment of our excellently equipped practical facilities.

Your journey through our Certificate programme

Timings, assessment and learning support

The individual courses are held within a face to face training environment, giving you the opportunity to meet like-minded people and share experiences.

You can start on a Nurse Certificate programme at any time in the year and choose to study over a period of one to three years towards the exam or opt to attend the individual modules. If you are working towards the Certificate, you will need to attend all taught modules and register for the multiple-choice question exam with ISVPS.

Access Requirements:

If you would like to attain the NCert, you must have been in practice for a minimum of one year and be a Registered Veterinary Nurse, or equivalent if you are not practising in the UK. 

You can attend the modules if you are a student, or not in practice and enrolled with the RCVS; however, you will not be able to attain the NCert qualification.
