What you will study On this course, you’ll gain experience of caring for people aged 16 years and over and will acquire an understanding of health and ill health within the adult population. In your first year, you’ll study topics that are fundamental to adult nursing, including concepts of caring, physical health sciences, and public health promotion, ensuring you have a solid foundation upon which to build the rest of your degree. During your second year, you’ll understand how to provide care for long-term conditions and gain an appreciation for managing transition in care, including breaking significant news to patients. You’ll develop your decision-making and leadership skills and will gain an interesting perspective into how psychosocial, spiritual, ethical and legal influences have an impact on the way patient care is provided. In your third year, you’ll learn how to effectively assess and manage deteriorating patients, analysing and debating a range of treatment options and evidence, to inform a choice of strategies for managing their holistic delivery of care. After graduating from our course, you'll be a confident, autonomous practitioner, driven and committed to advocate and meet the needs of patients and their families, as outlined in the NHS Constitution.
