Course summary

An elderly woman needing stitches and care after a car accident. A distressed alcoholic patient refusing treatment after a serious fall. A cancer patient returning to your ward, only 19 and no longer in remission. This course is an entry route for registered Nursing Associates to join our existing cohort of 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 or simulated practice in a variety of settings, these may include an operating theatre, accident and emergency, a community health centre, an intensive care unit, an outpatient’s department, or a nursing home. When you’re on campus, you’ll practice clinical skills and techniques, such as 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 how poverty impacts on health, leading and managing in healthcare 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
