There is a global need for postgraduate nursing skills, so our online Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing course has been developed to meet that need for life-changing learning and enhanced career development.

This Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing at Coventry University attracts a wide group of UK and internationally-based nurses with demanding workplace schedules because it enables working nurses to still benefit from career development.

After completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing, there would be an opportunity to continue your studies to complete the full MSc in Nursing. If you pursued this route (at an additional cost), you could go on and complete the diploma and masters stages to gain an MSc in Nursing.


The design, content and delivery of this course aims to develop postgraduate skills specifically for the professional nursing community, in order to support future application in your area of practice.

Skills commonly identified by employers as highly desirable are all included, such as research and analytical ability, and the ability to work independently, tackle difficult problems and seek creative solutions. You can also join a community focused on enhancing professional practice and cultural intelligence.

An Employability Support Team is also on hand to develop your employability and to enable employers to match their recruitment needs with the knowledge, skills and experience of students and graduates.
