As a student nurse you will undertake practice placement in a variety of settings including the new Glasgow Children’s Hospital, community nursing and school nursing.
These experiences will be supported by theoretical nursing knowledge and practical experiences developed in GCU’s state-of-the-art inter-professional clinical simulation centre. A fully equipped simulated home and hospital environment, situated on campus, is used to provide opportunities for the development and practice of clinically focused skills in a safe, supported and highly effective learning environment.
You will also have the opportunity to undertake international placements. In recent years our students have embarked on placements in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sweden and Bangladesh.
Upon graduation you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
