Course details

The course has two intakes each year and applicants who accept an offer of a place will be allocated a place in either the September or February/March intake. The ideal applicant will have had some form of caring experience – voluntary or paid – prior to application.

​Adult nurses care for adults of all ages in both acute and long term care. On the BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult), you will gain the skills, experience and confidence to be an effective healthcare professional, with particular aptitude in key areas such as caring, counselling, managing, teaching and interpersonal skills, which are essential to improving patient care and quality of life.

You will have plenty of opportunities for hands-on practice within a variety of settings including the traditional hospital environment and also the community such as nursing homes, home environments, clinics and treatment rooms. This experience will give you vital skills in assessing, planning, delivering and evaluating patient care and needs.

You will also become proficient in measuring and recording physiological observations, moving and handling, resuscitation, drug administration, communication skills and personal hygiene delivery so that by the time you qualify, you will have the confidence to deal with real patients in the NHS, private and voluntary settings right from the minute you start your professional career.

If you are excited by the idea of seeing how health care delivery works in other countries, there may be opportunities to study in Europe. This can involve a period of study and practice in one of our partner universities in Finland or Sweden.
