Course summary

TEF Silver

Bournemouth University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Our new Master’s degree course in Adult Nursing, with professional registration, is open to applicants with a first-degree or a higher degree. The programme makes use of Nursing & Midwifery Council’s (NMC) provision for prior learning to allow students to complete the academic award and achieve professional registration as a nurse via a two-year postgraduate level course.

The NMC’s Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2018) require programmes leading to registration to be delivered over 4600 hours, with 50% of this theory and 50% practice. The NMC do however permit prior learning, in any subject, to be recognised where this can be mapped against the programme outcomes and requirements.

Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the art and science of adult nursing. Communication and interprofessional team working are key in health and social care and you’ll develop a range of interpersonal skills that enable you to work effectively with a wide diversity of clients and within a variety of complex settings.

Your placements will see you work in a number of exciting and diverse locations, from NHS hospitals to care homes, private clinics to community nursing teams, giving you the experience you need to grow in both confidence and competence. In addition, the MSc has a focus on research skills and leadership, which meet required practice gaps. You will also be prepared for continued study at PhD level.
