About the Course

Perioperative nurses work with patients who are having operative or other invasive procedures. They help plan, implement, and evaluate treatment of the surgical patient and may work closely with the patient, family members, and other health care professionals.

You will study this course over 12-weeks online, which will require approximately 10 hours of study time per-week including a two-hour online tutorial.

As the course is online you will have the flexibility to study when and at times that suit your work and personal life. Our online learning environment provides engaging and interesting lectures and discussion forums in bite-sized pieces and is available on your PC, laptop, or mobile device.

On completion, you may complete two further units over 12-weeks to earn a Graduate Certificate in Advanced Nursing (Perioperative Nursing) or expand your nursing career and study a Master of Nursing with IHM.
