Adult nurses help care for people over 18 who are ill, injured, or have physical disabilities. They monitor patients' progress and, in conjunction with doctors and other members of the health care team, decide what care to give, as well as advising and supporting patients and their relatives. Although demanding and intense work, it can be exceptionally rewarding. Our innovative two-year course will prepare you for a career in a wide range of rewarding adult nursing opportunities, including in general medical and surgical wards, as well as specialist units such as Accident and Emergency or intensive care. Many of our graduates take their first posts as qualified practitioners in the NHS Trusts and hospitals in which they gained experience. The course will also develop your abilities to consider the wider aspects influencing health needs of adults, preparing you for future leadership in a changing and challenging health care system. As a Masters graduate you will be empowered to use the skills and knowledge gained in your theory and skills modules and apply these to the care and management you provide to your patients.
