Why choose this course?

These programmes provide the theoretical knowledge and practical experience needed to register as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. They are ideal if you have the potential to contribute to, and lead in, frontline and specialist nursing roles.

What will you study?

You can choose to study one of four nursing fields: adult nursing, child nursing, learning disability nursing or mental health nursing.

In the first year you will be introduced to the foundations of nursing and healthcare; while, in the second year you will look at the context of nursing within a variety of client groups. General nursing topics are studied alongside subjects tailored to your specific pathway.

In your final year you will carry out a research dissertation on a subject of special interest.
