- Studying the MSc Nursing programme will enable graduate students to practice effectively within a professional values base in a variety of health and social care settings: emphasising compassion, communication and dignity in care. You’ll gain an advanced understanding, knowledge and the skills required in becoming a first level qualified nurse with a sound portfolio of clinical and interpersonal skills, preparing you for your preferred career pathway.
- Successful completion of this programme will lead to a dual academic and professional qualification:
- Academic - MSc Nursing with Registered Nurse - Adult (180 credits at Level 7)
- Professional - Registered Nurse (Adult or Mental Health) - registered with the NMC (Nursing & Midwifery Council)
- As a nurse specialising in adult care, you can deliver care to people who need immediate help and support in hospitals or community settings; or assist people to recover and manage an illness they will have to live with for the rest of their life. Promoting good health and educating people to care for themselves, or members of their family or community, is a key focus for adult nurses, whether their patients are in hospital, care homes or being nursed at home.
- Nursing is the most rewarding of careers. Registered Nurses provide professional care for patients in many settings and your experiences within the course will prepare you for registration. Throughout the course, you will work with young and elderly alike, some will have physical problems you can see, while others will have mental health problems that call for excellent listening skills as much as your clinical knowledge.
- You'll need to be open-minded and motivated to help patients understand themselves and their condition. Whether it's assisting a patient to overcome major surgery or helping someone with agoraphobia leave their house, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that you've made a real difference to peoples' lives.
- Nursing is open to all those who want to care for others. Your age, experience and qualifications will have their part to play in deciding how you wish to begin your nursing career. You'll soon realise you are entering a profession in which only you set the limits to your potential.
- Service users, carers and the wider community are also involved in the development, delivery and running of the nursing programme. Service users and carers share their experiences with students at the University and are involved in providing students with feedback in clinical practice, as well as being involved in recruitment and assessment activities.
