Course summary

Why Study BSc Nursing (Professional Practice) (Top Up) with us? Open new avenues by topping up to degree level This course enables current registered nurses to top up their qualification to degree level, opening up a whole range of new career opportunities. This 18 month top-up course is designed for qualified nurses who already hold a Dip Advanced, CertHE or DipHE qualification who want to study for an undergraduate degree. As part of your course, you’ll have the opportunity to study clinical and professional practice-related inquiry methods in order to engage in clinical and practice development. Although you’ll be in current employment, successfully completing this programme will rapidly expand your career opportunities. You’ll be able to take on specialist and leadership roles, as well as undertake further postgraduate studies. Previous graduates have gone on to work as a research nurse and clinical managers among others. Follow a path shaped by your interest As part of your degree you’ll study two modules relevant to your work. One will be based on practice enquiry, while the other is a work based project that focuses on organisational professional practice development and change. During the course you’ll develop your critical thinking and decision making skills, and you’ll also have the opportunity to reflect and analyse your own performance. As you’re a professional nurse with significant prior learning, you’ll be encouraged to be responsible for your own learning and progress. You’ll take on scenario work, as well as pre and post-sessional work to assess and build your skills. Get the support you need Our personalised approach gives you the support you need to succeed as a student. While you're an undergraduate or foundation year student, you’ll have a Personal Tutor directly related to your course. If you need support with academic writing, numeracy and library skills, we’ll be sure to provide it.
