About Nursing Studies - Adult or Mental Health Nursing at Sheffield Hallam University

Depending on your choice of pathway this course leads to Advanced Diploma Nursing Studies – Adult Nursing Advanced Diploma Nursing Studies – Child Nursing Advanced Diploma Nursing Studies – Mental Health Nursing In the first year, you study the core themes relevant to adult, child and mental health nursing. In the second and third years, your learning is specific to your chosen pathway. You study some interprofessional education modules alongside students from other health disciplines, such as radiographers and paramedics. This shared learning experience allows you to develop teamworking and understand the contribution different professionals make. Practice-based learning is central to your development. Typically, you spend 20 weeks a year on clinical placement. Each placement block is supported by University-based training. You have a management placement in your final year which guides your transition from student to registered nurse. On your placements, we assign you a qualified and experienced nurse as a mentor. They support you and make sure you are comfortable in your surroundings, allowing you to make the most of the experience. We base some of our teaching in our modern, £13 million, purpose-built Robert Winston Building on the Collegiate Crescent Campushttp://www.shu.ac.uk/visit/plancollegiate.html. It has teaching rooms that reproduce the work environment of hospitals and other related settings. These contain the latest teaching and clinical equipment and technology.
