University of Suffolk has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
Our Pre-Reg Nursing course has at its heart the 6Cs of nursing, developed and launched by the Chief Nursing Officer in 2012 and the NHS Constitution Values. The Department of Nursing Studies is committed to embedding these values into everything we do; they define the behaviours and expectations of all our staff and students underpinning the work we do in the university and in the practice setting. The course delivers a blended approach to teaching and learning which includes lectures, seminars and discussions at the Ipswich Campus, Great Yarmouth base site and at the Bury St Edmunds base site.
This course offers students the opportunity to focus on the specific health needs of patients and their family/care(s). The nature of nursing means that students will be involved in working with the variety of people who access the services provided by the health care system. Patients may have short term acute or long term health needs and adult nurses will be prepared to care for the physical, emotional and mental health care needs of all.
Upon successful completion of your programme you will have the opportunity to work in a variety of places including community and hospital settings, education and research. With the increasing emphasis on nursing people in the community, the opportunities are continuing to grow and we are seeing high levels (97%) of graduate recruitment within the East of England.
