Course summary

Our BNurs/MNurs Adult Nursing course will help you become a skilled and highly sought-after graduate nurse specialising in caring for adult patients in a range of settings. You will split your time equally between learning theory on campus and applying your knowledge to practice alongside other health professionals in a range of healthcare settings. You will receive support from both our staff and your fellow students throughout your time at Manchester, as well as from experienced colleagues in practice. As a graduate, you'll have the choice of practicing as a nurse, going into a specialist or a leadership role, or undertaking further study, research opportunities or teaching. The BNurs award is for the three-year undergraduate course. Depending on your performance in Years 1 and 2, you will have the opportunity to apply to extend your studies by a year to undertake an integrated master's in nursing. This will also involve an additional year of tuition fees. By choosing to complete the integrated master's, you are preparing for career progression within nursing by developing your leadership and research skills. The integrated master's will deliver units at postgraduate level, developing your skills in critical engagement with issues at the forefront of your chosen field of nursing. You will learn how to critically examine, reflect and develop new insights, contributing to nursing research, education and clinical practice agenda through your research study. This Adult Nursing (BNurs) is for students without an undergraduate degree. If you already have a degree, see: MSc Adult Nursing.
