You can train to be a fully qualified adult nurse in two years if you have already completed an honours degree, preferably in a health-related subject. After completing the course, you are able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified adult nurse. Practice-based learning is central to your development and you spend 45 weeks of your course on placement. You gain experience in a diverse range of adult nursing settings, such as caring for acutely ill adults in their own homes. Placements are across South Yorkshire and the Humber, in some of the UK’s leading healthcare providers. On your placements, you are assigned a qualified and experienced adult nurse as a mentor. They support you and make sure you are comfortable in your surroundings, so you make the most of the experience. You work with old and young adults with critical and acute health care needs. Adult nurses also assist with longer term and palliative care requirements. Work may be based in hospital wards, clinics or community settings. We provide modern facilities to help you develop clinical skills and specialist knowledge for your career. You study in our £13 million purpose-built Robert Winston Building on our Collegiate Crescent Campus, in clinical suites that include a mock ward and operating theatre, replicate the hospital and community settings in which you learn and work. This makes it easier to take what you’ve learnt in the University out into the real world with confidence.
