Course summary

Overview Our exciting and transformational Adult Nursing degree has been developed collaboratively with practice partners, service users and students. At its heart is the recognition that nursing is an evolving profession with individuals working as part of today’s interdisciplinary healthcare teams in a wide range of settings. You will learn how to make a positive impact on the lives of adults with a diverse range of health and dependency needs, including physical and emotional care requirements, particularly addressing the needs of the ageing population. We train our Adult Nursing students to be articulate, flexible, decision makers able to promote health and well-being, prioritise effective care and implement evidence-based nursing practice. They will work collaboratively with inter-professional teams, service users and their families, respecting their rights, choices and wishes. Key features
