About Adult Nursing (with professional registration) at Bournemouth University

The postgraduate diploma course in Adult Nursing is open to applicants with a first-degree or a higher degree; the programme makes use of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) provision for prior learning to allow students to complete the academic award and achieve professional registration as a nurse via a two-year course. Successful applicants will undertake some of their studies alongside undergraduate students completing the BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing, but will also complete dedicated study at Master's level to achieve a postgraduate qualification. 

The NMC’s Standards for Pre-registration Nursing Education (2010) require programmes leading to registration to be delivered over 4600 hours, with 50% of this theory and 50% practice; NMC do however permit prior learning to be recognised where this can be mapped against the programme outcomes and requirements. Students applying for this programme will therefore need to demonstrate that they have the relevant experience and learning prior to entering the course.

Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the art and science of adult nursing. Communication and team working are key in health and social care and you will develop a range of interpersonal skills that enable you to work effectively with a wide diversity of clients and within complex settings.

The health economy is rapidly changing and future nurses are likely to be located in a broader range of workplaces. Your placement opportunities will therefore be in a diverse range of settings which include the growing independent sector as well as care within the community, preparing you to function effectively and meet the health care needs of an increasing ageing population.
