Nurses make an essential contribution to the care, support and rehabilitation of people, whose health is affected by illness, injury or chronic disease, seeking to improve their health and wellbeing. At Worcester we promote the values of the NHS Constitution and develop professional, flexible and responsive nursing graduates, who are not only caring and compassionate, treating individuals with dignity and respect, but who are self-aware, reflective practitioners who have the ability to think critically. The Pre-Registration Nursing degree programme acknowledges that nursing is a practice-based, academic and professional discipline. Our curriculum is designed and delivered in partnership with local health providers and with those who use health services through our strong service user and carer network. You will gain practice experience in a range of health settings supported by qualified nurse mentors. The changing demands on health services means that future nurses will need to be politically astute and innovative, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, who seek to work in partnership with, and empower, service users and their families and who are motivated to take a lead in quality healthcare developments and initiatives. These are the characteristics that we develop in our students.
