The degree in Nursing leads to a professional nursing qualification and eligibility to register as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This is a combined theory and practice course centred on patients and their families and carers with equal amounts of theory and clinical practice which enables students to develop requisite knowledge and experience in different aspects of healthcare. Students are expected to reflect the values as outlined by the University of Bradford and the NHS Constitution in both academic and practice settings. These values include being compassionate, demonstrating empathy and working to improve the health and wellbeing of others. We are seeking students who can develop their communication skills, their competence in this field of nursing and show commitment to upholding these values during their education and into their future careers.
