We offer post graduate pre-registration nursing in two fields of nursing (adult and mental health) and have excellent links with the NHS and other care providers. Nursing skills are taught and assessed in four laboratories. Learning clinical skills in the laboratories ensures that students develop competence in a safe, protected environment. In order to develop multi-professional and collaborative working, there is shared learning between nursing and midwifery students in areas such as biological and social sciences, informatics, research, ethics, health policy and management.
This programme offers both practice and theoretical learning in a variety of institutional and community settings. For adult nursing, placements are in hospitals and the local community, such as GP practices and with community nurses and health visitors. Mental health nursing placements are much more community-focused, in clinics, forensic services and health centres.
Applications for these programmes should be made via UCAS. Please note that this programme is not available to international students.
The aims of the programme are:
- To develop the personal and professional skills needed to competently undertake the role and responsibilities of a registered nurse
- To promote higher order thinking and the potential ability to undertake a leadership role in professional practice
- To work collaboratively with other professionals, service users and carers.
