Nurses/Doctors who've stitched patients up.

Has anyone here ever had experience in stitching up cuts and whatnot? Or how about themselves?
Is it something you have to go through a nursing program to be taught, or are there seperate courses that cover this in a more isolated fashion?
What kind of special needles/threads would I need?
And finally, is it feasable to learn up on stitching self-taught style and stitch your own self (I imagine this last concept will be knocked down as a complete no-no)?

Edit: PS: This isn't an urgent question, no one is cut.
