The adult nursing field cares for people over the age of 18 who are ill, recovering from illness or accident, or adapting to life-changing disabilities and long-term conditions. You will learn how to assess the needs of the patient through acute and long-term illness, promote health and wellbeing, communicate effectively with professional colleagues, and provide sensitive support for the patient and their families.

Theory is assessed via essays, presentation, multiple-choice questionnaire, unseen written examination, and projects. Practice is assessed in the clinical environment by experienced, qualified practitioners using a Practice Assessment Record, which sets out the skills, attitudes and knowledge of practice to be measured.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
