BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult)

About the course

Adult Nursing is a highly skilled, knowledgeable and caring profession. As a nurse you are required to provide high quality care to adults, and their families.

Adult Nursing activities encompass promoting health, providing evidence based whole person care while supporting and educating individuals and families both in hospitals and in the community.

You will gain a BSc(Hons) degree in Adult Nursing and be eligible to apply to register as an Adult Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

It runs over three extended academic years, incorporating core and inter-professional modules and adult field-specific modules. Throughout the course you will develop critical, analytical and reflective skills that will enable you to make sound judgements and provide good evidence-based care.

The course consists of lectures, seminars and tutorials delivered at the University which explore the theoretical underpinnings of practice as a nurse. The theoretical learning accounts for fifty per cent of your time. The remaining fifty per cent of the course involves completing blocks of learning occurring in a variety of clinical settings where you will develop a wide range of skills associated with adult nursing.

By integrating theory and practice, the course allows you to become a skilled, competent, compassionate and committed adult nurse with the necessary communication skills that are required to ensure patient care remains at the forefront of professional practice.
