Whether you’d like to provide care for adults in community or acute settings, this innovative nursing degree is designed to provide a great foundation for your future career. Regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), with strong links with NHS Trusts and experienced lecturers and mentors, this course could be a great place for you to take the first steps towards making a huge difference to people’s everyday lives.
We know just how challenging and rewarding it can be to work in the rapidly changing world of health professions. That’s why, from day one on this course, you’ll get the opportunity to learn in a supportive, forward-thinking and well-connected environment.
You’ll explore all aspects of nursing, from the fundamentals of providing care to more advanced topics such as complex needs, and leadership and management. While the focus of your studies will be on caring for adults, you’ll also gain an understanding of how to respond to the needs of all patients and service users from all fields of child, learning disability and mental health nursing.
Supported by a team who really understand what it’s like to be an adult nurse, you’ll learn through lectures, seminars, group work, simulation and role play. In our fully equipped simulated ward, you’ll have the opportunity to put what you’ve learnt into practice in a safe environment using our patient simulators. The course aims to help you become a confident, competent, caring and compassionate nurse. You'll develop a range of specialist skills including communication, decision-making, team working and upholding professional values.
You’ll undertake clinical placements throughout the course in a variety of settings including hospitals, nursing homes, in the community, as well as voluntary and private sectors. You’ll learn and develop both practical and theoretical skills in order to help and achieve your full potential as an adult nurse and meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Standards.
Please note: the information for this course is subject to change, as the Nursing and Midwifery Council are releasing some new nursing standards in Spring 2018 and the course curriculum will be changed to reflect these accordingly.
