We are proud to be ranked number one in London for Nursing and Midwifery (Guardian University League Tables, 2020). Kingston and St George’s won three Nursing Times Awards in 2019. This course provides you with theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This Masters course is ideal if you are interested in a career in frontline, leadership or specialist nursing. Our academic team members come from diverse backgrounds specific to adult nursing including cancer, dementia care, ICU, A&E, neuro, acute medicine, community (district nursing, health visiting), sexual health and respiratory nursing. Our state-of-the-art simulation suite provides you with unrivalled opportunities to develop your skills in caring for adults through highly realistic simulations and role play. You will also have opportunities to learn with, and from, midwifery students and lecturers in simulations and share learning with the child, and mental health student nurses to enhance your skills in caring for clients from these fields. Many members of our adult nursing teaching team have contributed to the latest Essentials of Nursing Practice textbook. You will gain practice experience in an area of London or Surrey which includes an acute hospital and you will have opportunities to work in the community. You will have the opportunity to take a national or international elective placement at the end of your first year. Adult nursing is a person-centred profession with the primary aim of promoting the wellbeing and social inclusion of all people through improving or maintaining physical and mental health (Department of Health, 2010). Adult nurses provide care for people over the age of 18 and increasingly for older people with complex conditions. They may also care for people with a mental health condition or a learning disability or for children and their families. Adult nurses work in a range of settings including A&E, critical care, medical and surgical wards, rehabilitation units, GP practices, healthcare centres, hospices and in people's own homes.
