How do we tackle rising obesity levels in children? Should we use apps to diagnose and treat patients? Which services will we need to cope with an ageing population? Health and social care is evolving in our modern society. We’re seeing many changes to the way our healthcare systems work, from devolution in Manchester to an integration of health and social care services, as well as the introduction of the new nursing associate role in England. This exciting course provides you with both an academic and professional qualification that gives entry to a range of careers within nursing. The course will prepare you for a role as a nursing associate which is intended to complement registered nurses. The nursing associate course offers new routes into registered nursing roles and shortened entry to honours degree nursing courses. We’ve designed this two-year course to help you develop the practical clinical skills and techniques (such as how to give an injection) you’ll need to work in health or social care settings, as well as the confidence to work as part of a larger team. You may practice some clinical skills alongside students on our BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing course, in our Clinical Simulation Suite. You’ll also work with them on the simulated scenarios we create there, such as major trauma management where a patient involved in a motorbike accident arrives who needs stabilising and emergency care. It’s a fantastic way to learn how to operate as part of a team and explore ways you’ll work with nurses to support patients. Features and benefits

  • University experience- Experience being a full-time University student with other undergraduates.
  • Real-world experience- Wide range of placement and simulation opportunities.
  • Build your confidence- You’ll learn clinical skills alongside our student nurses to help you develop confidence in working as part of a team.
  • Student support- Excellent level of student support, from a department with the highest level of student satisfaction for student support in England (NSS 2019).
  • Teaching expertise- You’re taught by an academic team who have all worked as practising nurses, health visitors or emergency practitioners.
  • Continue your studies- As a graduate, you could continue with your studies and undertake a shortened course: BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing or BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing
