PGDip / PGCert




Start date


students can apply

I was a gynaecology cancer nurse specialist and clinic nurse in gynaecology outpatients before my studies. This was an intense course but the content was well taught and the support I received allowed me to get the most out of my learning. I'm currently working in York Teaching Hospital as a nurse hysteroscopist and colposcopist. If you are given the chance to do this programme you should grab it with both hands!
