This two-year Nursing Associate Foundation Degree is split between placements and on-campus learning. Train for a key nursing role, responding to the needs of patients and their families. Nursing associates support the delivery of high-quality care while allowing nurses and wider teams to focus on complex clinical duties. This role is highly valuable in responding to patient needs. In the first year of this course, you discover more about the role and its values. You'll study anatomy and physiology to understand the biology behind ill-health, plus the psychological and social factors that affect health and wellbeing. In the second year, you learn more about disease processes, and how to deliver and manage planned care. You'll also learn about drugs and pharmacology for medicine management. Successful completion of the course entitles you to register with the Nursing & Midwifery (NMC) council as a Registered Nurse Associate. What you should know about this course:
