Course summary

The overall aim of this programme is to equip you with all the knowledge, skills and attributes you will need to meet the challenges of being a nurse in the changing context of healthcare and to succeed in the modern National Health Service. This degree provides students with lifelong learning and working opportunities as well as a strong focus on nursing leadership. You will gain valuable theoretical knowledge alongside practical experience. The cohorts are small and this helps to ensure that our students receive the support they require to help them to get the best out of the programme. Throughout the three years, you will gain extensive clinical experience in a variety of different settings, including hospital wards, clinics, community settings, critical care and palliative care. There is a global placement incorporated into Year Two to identify the public health needs of communities both in local and global settings. This programme is recognised by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) for the purpose of registration as a qualified nurse (adult).
