Nursing - Adult

Adult nurses have a key role in working with people and communities to promote health, prevent ill-health and to enable people to maintain and improve mental and physical health. They care for people who are acutely ill or who have long-term conditions, recovering from an accident or illness, or learning to live with a disability. As an adult nurse you will work in partnership with individuals, families, carers and groups who may have a wide range of healthcare needs as part of a healthcare inter-professional team. This means you are required to have a wide range of skills and expertise. This course has been developed to enable you to become a confident and capable nurse who is equipped to practise effectively within hospital and community-based environments. Successful completion of the course (depending on the chosen field of practice you select when you apply) will lead to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council as a Registered Nurse with a mark denoting your field of practice. In each year, you will explore the themes of: health; understanding health inequalities; health-promotion; information literacy and effectiveness; person centred practice; essential clinical nursing skills for delivering safe practice; and bio-psycho-social sciences, underpinning nursing practice across the lifespan. All three BNursing courses have strong, well-established partnerships with clinicians and managers in hospital and community settings. With 50% of your study taking place in practice settings, you will learn how to reflect upon and apply relevant theoretical concepts within ‘real-life’ environments. The expertise and skills of clinical staff and the willingness of patients to support the learning of healthcare professionals are key resources for your learning. Interprofessional education experiences are embedded within the programme at each stage, enabling you to learn with a wide variety of other health and social care students.
