Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications are widely recognized by industry and higher education as the principal vocational qualification at Levels 4 and 5. When developing the Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Healthcare Practice, we collaborated with a wide range of students, employers, higher education providers, colleges and subject experts to ensure that the new qualifications meet their needs and expectations. The new Pearson BTEC Higher National qualifications in Healthcare Practice are designed to reflect this increasing need for high quality professional and technical education pathways at Levels 4 and 5, thereby providing students with a clear line of sight to employment and to progression to a degree at Level 6.

By the end students will be able to:

  • Relate the principles of effective nursing practice to own personal and professional development
  • Explore the impact of environmental factors on the service user experience
  • Analyze health and safety policy underpinning safe nursing procedures and practice
  • Provide appropriate care for service users in different life stage

Nursing Programme needs a wide variety of skills and knowledge, from physical personal support techniques to knowledge of illnesses, medication and patient monitoring, from emotional and social support of service users and their friends and families, to dealing with bereavement. This unit provides an overview of the underpinning principles, values and basic practice requirements for roles in nursing, giving students an insight into the profession and supporting progression to nursing or related roles. It focuses on four areas: the underpinning principles of care, factors that impact quality of care, health, safety and safeguarding/protection responsibilities of the healthcare practitioner, and providing effective support to service users using health and care services.
