Nursing (Adult) at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

Nurses are at the heart of health and social care, working directly with patients and clinicians to improve and save lives every day. The nursing profession can be challenging but it’s dynamic and incredibly rewarding too, with plenty of opportunities to develop your career. Taught by healthcare professionals Our degree will provide you with excellent preparation to become a Registered Adult Nurse and support you to be the best you can be. You'll be taught by a team of experts from a range of areas. They will draw on their own experiences of working in healthcare to share best practices and introduce you to the latest issues and concepts in nursing. Alongside theoretical and clinical knowledge, you’ll also develop your leadership, problem-solving, communication and resilience – all crucial to becoming a capable and compassionate nurse. Clinical experience We know how important it is to get hands-on, practical experience. You’ll spend half of your education on clinical placements in a range of community, primary care and hospital settings, working under the supervision of qualified practitioners. All of your placements will be in the same geographical area – either Barnsley, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham or Sheffield. You can contact and visit each of our community partners before making a decision about where you would like to go. Alongside these placements, you can put your learning to the test at our purpose-built Clinical Skills Centre, which features state-of-the-art mock wards, resuscitation suites, simulation theatres and homes, classrooms and equipment. This course is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). It will give you the clinical skills and knowledge you need for entry into the NMC professional register as an adult nurse.
