Course summary

Why you should study this course Successful completion of this course enables graduates from a range of backgrounds to enter the nursing profession in just two years:

  • Ideal for those with a prior undergraduate degree and experience in health and social care, our course combines 50% clinical placement with 50% academic learning. You'll have the opportunity to complete placements in a variety of healthcare settings2 and benefit from 20% simulated digital experience to enhance your practical skills.
  • With 85% of the academic learning delivered online, you'll have the freedom to study from anywhere in the UK for the majority of the course. It is a Nursing and Midwifery Council requirement that students must be resident in the UK during all the theory and practice elements of the course.
  • Previous undergraduate degrees may include (but are not limited to) health-related disciplines, psychology, criminology or sociology degrees. Those with non-health-related degrees must demonstrate extensive experience in the clinical health and social care sector. It is also suitable for existing nurses looking for dual qualification. More details on the type of experience required can be found in the entry requirements section.
  • The face-to-face skills and practical teaching elements will be delivered from either Coventry, Scarborough or Vauxhall, London campuses. We will try to accommodate your preferred choice, subject to availability. Please note you are responsible for your travel arrangements to attend these.
  • Clinical placements are integral and account for 50% of the course2. This includes clinical practice in a healthcare setting (organised by the university) and practice learning with local practice collaborators. You will be expected to complete placements across four practice modules in a range of areas such as emergency, high dependency care, community and home care delivery settings and medical/surgery acute hospital experiences. Practice assessment is divided into three parts which is designed to explore the proficiencies required to become an autonomous nurse practitioner.
  • There will be opportunities for 20% simulated digital experience as part of the clinical placements. This will be an online, cutting-edge simulated experience where you will be fully supervised, and it is designed so that you can work safely both individually and in groups, with the chance to explore and assess and interventions in ‘near to real life’ clinical scenarios. The hands-on elements of the clinical placements may be delivered in one of the following regions of England: Midlands, North East and Yorkshire, London, Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire, and East of England. Please note you are responsible for your travel arrangements to attend your placements.
  • Upon successful completion, in addition to eligibility for NMC registration (application and additional costs apply), you will also graduate with a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) accredited qualification in Global Professional Development in Leading and Creating Organisational Health and Wellbeing and you will have the opportunity to apply to become a member of the CMI.
