Course summary

The course will prepare you to become a registered adult nurse and you will learn how to assess, plan and evaluate the needs of the patient with complex acute and long-term illness, promote health and wellbeing, and communicate effectively with professional colleagues and service users. You will learn to become an adaptable, flexible practitioner who will be able to lead care, supervise others and work in a demanding and rapidly changing environment. Foundation year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Teaching of this Foundation Year will be at our Marriss House campus in Birkenhead. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you will be able to progress onto the BN Adult Nursing programme at our Marriss House campus or at one of our other teaching sites.
