As a nurse you can make a huge difference to people's health and wellbeing. Offered in partnership with the Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the University of Bolton’s Nursing (Adult) degree aims to give you the experience and skills to join this demanding yet deeply rewarding career.

The University of Bolton’s Nursing (Adult) degree, offered in partnership with Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, is designed to prepare you for a successful career caring for people over 18. There is a shortage of qualified nurses in the UK, so the career opportunities are excellent.

You’ll spend 50% of your time in practice learning experience at our partner trust and study at the university will complement and enhance your learning in the workplace. We’ll support you as you learn to care for adults with acute and long-term illnesses, in hospital and at home, and gain expertise in health promotion and disease prevention.

Together with our partner trust, we’ll work to prepare you to become a confident, professional nurse, able to deliver and lead adult care within an ever changing health and social care environment. On successful completion of the nursing qualification you’ll possess the knowledge and skills you need to perform as an independent, highly competent, compassionate nurse who can be trusted to maintain professional standards and assure the protection of the public.
