Do you care about people, their wellbeing and want to make a difference? Working with our partner NHS Trusts, Solent’s adult nursing practice degree will equip you with the skills to become a confident and caring nurse, able to deliver and lead adult care within an ever changing health and social care environment. In collaboration with health and care providers, this undergraduate pre-registration nursing programme supports the growth of nursing in the region. The course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This accreditation will mean that on successful completion of the programme you’ll be entitled to register with the NMC. The course is designed to help you progress from a novice practitioner towards the skills of competent registered nurse. High emphasis is given to clinical skills training, nursing assessment and care planning, inter-agency and inter-professional working, evidence-based practice, and public health initiatives. The course features a case-based approach to teaching and learning and key elements such as pharmacology, physiology and holistic practice are threaded throughout the units. Upon completion of your training you will have gained a range of skills and experience and will be ready to transition into the role of a qualified nurse. You'll be taught by a combination of academic staff with practice and/or research experience, alongside clinical educators from our partner NHS Trusts. You'll also have the opportunity to learn and work alongside other students and staff from a range of disciplines. The course combines three strands of learning: Applied theory. Developing your awareness of values for nurses and being an accountable professional nurse. You’ll build skills in evidence-based and person-centred decision making to support and deliver best clinical practice. You’ll also develop critical thinking, resilience and coaching skills. This will help to enable you to become a proficient nurse capable of leading care teams in a complex and pressurised health and social care sector. Nursing simulation and action learning. Using the simulation facilities to develop and refine your clinical skills and support your developing knowledge of physiology and pharmacology. You’ll reflect on your practice and share experiences in peer groups to draw out critical incidences, discuss sensitive issues and identify solutions. Nursing practice. Undertaking clinical placements to observe, examine, assess and engage with adult patients and service users. This takes place across community, primary care and hospital settings under appropriate supervision. A key aspect of this course is patient involvement and patient centred care. You‘ll have regular contact with patients, service users and public members who all have experience and expertise as patients or carers.
