Do you want to make a difference and help adults who are ill, injured or have physical disabilities? Offered in partnership with the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Bolton’s Nursing (Adult) degree aims to give you the experience and skills to join this demanding yet rewarding career.
The University of Bolton’s Nursing (Adult) degree, offered in partnership with the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, is designed to prepare you for a successful career caring for people over 18 who are ill, injured, or have physical disabilities. There’s a shortage of qualified nurses in the UK, so the career opportunities are excellent.
You’ll spend 50% of your time in clinical practice placements 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.
