This accelerated nursing programme is designed specifically for students who are already registered nursing associates or who hold a level 5 assistant practitioner qualification. As a successful applicant you will join our BSc Nursing programme part way through to study alongside our existing students. Your initial study will focus on appraising your existing knowledge and skills and building on these in order to demonstrate your suitability for entry onto the NMC register as a Registered Nurse. Our nursing programmes embody a shared philosophy that represents the values and beliefs of key partners, including: students, patients, service users and families, practice colleagues and university staff. Theoretical underpinnings of the philosophy include: nursing ethics, personalisation, and a safety model ensuring the safety and protection of people of all ages and their carers and families. Key concepts support the development of professional behaviours, inter-professional working, values and attitudes expected of a compassionate nurse, such as: connectedness, emotional intelligence, and moral responsibility and creativity. You will work with staff and clinical partners as co-creators in your learning experience. A coaching approach to personal tutoring will unlock your potential and character development as a professional nurse. A wealth of facilities at university are available to you, including formal teaching, group and one-to-one sessions, a comfortable and enriching learning space with state-of-the-art clinical and immersive simulation suites. 50% of your studies will be spent across hospital and community settings, working alongside qualified assessors and supervisors. You will experience the realities of 24-hour service provision working night shifts and weekends. You may also have the opportunity to go on an international placement.
Assessment methods are varied and include assignments, presentations, observed structured clinical examinations, exams and portfolio assessment.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
