Film: Liverpool launches new nursing MOOC


The University of Liverpool has launched a new Massive Open Online course (MOOC) focused on the impact of nursing.

The course, part of the FutureLearn initiative, owned by The Open University, is free and aims to offer high quality programmes, delivered by internationally renowned experts.

As the first UK-led provider of MOOCs, FutureLearn combines elements of the social web with The Open University’s expertise in distance and open learning.

The central message of the new MOOC, led by Denis Parkinson from the University’s School of Health Sciences, is that nurses are at the forefront of healthcare delivery in a rapidly changing world.

Over the course of four weeks, learners will consider how historical developments in Liverpool continue to impact on nursing today; how modern and innovative nursing can change a patient’s quality of life; and how global nursing is shaping international health.

The course begins on the 23rd March.  To register, please visit:
