The Nursing and Midwifery Council introduced new national educational standards – Future Nurse Standards of Proficiency for registered Nurses in 2018. The curriculum from September 2021 onwards, is based on these standards for nurse education.
Adult nurses play crucial roles in healthcare settings by restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families, and responding to the varied healthcare needs of individual patients or communities.
During this course – thanks to strong links with service providers across the region – we are able to offer a range of placement opportunities embedded within all three years of the course.
You will benefit from shared learning opportunities with students from the other fields of nursing practice, but will also engage in field of practice specific learning opportunities throughout the programme, to ensure that you develop Adult nursing field of practice identity, knowledge and skills.
100% of our summer 2017 Nursing graduates are in work or further study (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education 2016-17) compared to a sector average of 94.6%.
The programme is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and upon graduation of the programme, you will be eligible to register with the NMC.
Graduates are eligible to apply for registration, and registered nurses can start on a salary of more than £24,000 (NHS pay scales 2019/20).
Study in our purpose-built facilities which comprise clinical skills suites, a moving and handling area, a cardiopulmonary resuscitation room and a sensory room – allowing you to apply theory to practice in a safe environment.
Our strong links and integrated work placements with local health and social care providers allow you to experience real-world situations.
