About this course Our MSc Nursing (Adult) postgraduate degree will prepare you for the complex, demanding, and rewarding arena of adult nursing. This programme supports you to become a proficient, safe and accountable practitioner, who can deliver person-centred, evidence-based effective care. This is a full time, two-year masters degree. Year 1 Throughout the first year of you degree, we will help you build on the foundation of your existing experience. Year 1 comprises four modules totalling 90 credits. These modules focus on establishing your theoretical understanding of contemporary nursing practice, along with developing complex nursing skills within clinical practice.
