London South Bank University
The Urology modules at London South Bank University are designed to form part of the professional and academic development of registered nurses working with urological patients. They are structured to provide students with the framework to acquire specialist knowledge and skills. These will enable them to assess patients' needs and plan and deliver appropriate evidence based nursing care to patients with disorders/dysfunction of the urinary system, encompassing physical, psychological and social aspects of care. Modules are offered at both degree and master’s level which give students a degree of flexibility when undertaking their continuing professional development.
