Studying adult nursing at the University of Brighton enables you to work closely with patients and their families as part of a versatile team of health and social care professionals including doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. You will learn how to tailor individual care for adults with a range of clinical needs. We will support you in becoming a caring and compassionate professional who delivers skilled, evidence-based care in partnership with patients, families and communities. Our focus on interdisciplinary learning across all our health courses enriches your experience while also preparing you for the reality of professional practice. You will also have the opportunity to experience nursing abroad through our international placements. Your teaching will be based at our Falmer campus in Brighton or our Eastbourne campus and there are varied placements across Sussex in both acute and community settings. You’ll spend 50% of the course on placement in healthcare settings with local NHS trusts, private and voluntary organisations. You will participate in simulation learning in our well-equipped clinical skills and simulation suites, allowing you to apply theory to practice in a supported environment. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum. Graduates will be eligible to apply for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and are entitled to practice anywhere in the UK.
