University of Brighton for Nursing

University of Brighton for Nursing

As a nurse you will work closely with people and their families as part of a versatile team that includes doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

In this job no two days are the same. To succeed, you need to be adaptable and committed, with a solid knowledge base and strong sense of compassion.

To ensure you can confidently apply theory to practice, you will spend 50% of your year on placements with local NHS Trusts in a variety of healthcare settings and simulate nursing situations in our state of the art Clinical Skills and Simulation Suites.

We support you to become caring and compassionate graduates who deliver skilled, evidence-based care in partnership with patients, clients, families, and communities. These qualities are underpinned by the common values of the NHS constitution where patients come first in everything the NHS does and include respect and dignity, compassion and working together for patients.

Our graduates’ employment prospects are excellent, with 96% of our most recent graduates in work or further study six months after completing the course (source: National Student Survey, Unistats).

Nurses are in demand all over the world and we recognise that some of our students want to experience nursing abroad. We offer overseas placements from two to four weeks, or an immersive three-month international stay.

You can start this course in September or February
