Our students demonstrate care, competence and compassion in everything they do. We have a long-standing commitment to teaching nursing at Essex and we are confident that our graduates possess the values necessary for practice in today’s world. As one of our students, you will develop the capacity to work autonomously in a client centred contemporary health setting, and gain the communication skills and courage to speak up and challenge when things are wrong. While the Adult and Mental Health Nursing courses are different in their career outcomes, they share the same values base and share some modules throughout the programmes. Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable.
