The MSc in Adult Nursing is designed for people who already have a degree and are looking for progression and further challenges which can be fulfilled by undertaking a rewarding and lifelong career within the nursing profession. The course prepares you for a fulfilling and rewarding career caring for adults of all ages who have had injuries, suffered accidents, acquired disease or have a range of healthcare needs. Throughout the course, you will develop your knowledge, skills and interests in both hospital general medicine and surgery, care closer to home and a variety of other specialist areas. Adult nursing is a challenging and fulfilling profession; as an adult nurse you need to be committed and dedicated with a willingness to give time to others with care and compassion. You will learn the skills of clinical decision-making that are supported by knowledge and experience of providing healthcare to a diverse population. The course combines theoretical study with clinical experience gained at some of London’s leading hospitals, trusts and community settings. The School's facilities feature an excellent Clinical Skills Centre, including simulated wards, where you can prepare for your practice experience. Whilst on clinical placements you will also benefit from exposure to the capital’s diverse population.
