This course is an entry route for registered Nursing Associates to join our existing students on the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing degree course. We’ve designed our course around the core values of the NHS constitution so that you understand what’s required in caring for and supporting vulnerable adults. Our aim is to make sure we prepare you for the challenges you may face and develop the expertise you’ll need to become a leader in nursing. You’ll spend half of this course on clinical placements in a variety of settings, these may include an operating theatre, accident and emergency, a community health centre, an intensive care unit, an outpatients department or a nursing home. When you’re on campus, you’ll practice clinical skills and techniques, such as how to manually take a patient’s blood pressure and how to give emergency care in our Clinical Simulation Suite. As well as practical skills, some of the topics you’ll explore in lectures include anatomy, infectious diseases, how poverty impacts on health, and the ethics of being an adult nurse in today’s society. All students must demonstrate in their personal statements an understanding of adult nursing in the UK incorporating the NHS core values and contemporary issues in nursing. You must evidence an understanding of the qualities required to be a nursing professional in the UK in order to be shortlisted for an interview. Successful applicants will be subject to a video/face-to-face interview. Features and Benefits
