Subject

Adult nursing

Nursing is a challenging but rewarding career that’ll change lives, including your own.

Working in people's homes, specialist and community services, nurses provide focused health support to people of all ages. You’ll play your part in improving access to healthcare, wellbeing, social inclusion and quality of life.

BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), which means you can register as a nurse with them when you graduate.

Working with a passionate, enthusiastic, skilled and supportive team, your learning will be enriched by the very latest best practice.

About half your time will be spent on placements, and you’ll have access to outstanding facilities including our Skills Simulation Suite (https://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whyuwe/fantasticfacilities/skillssimulationsuite.aspx).

Based at Glenside Campus, you’ll learn alongside other students from other health and social care courses, and develop essential people skills. There's also the opportunity to develop and apply your skills working abroad.

Nurses are in demand across the UK, in fields such as neurology, epilepsy, acute physical and mental healthcare, as well as specialist services for people with learning disabilities.

You could work in hospitals, in the community, for the NHS, in the prison service, or for private or voluntary sector employers.
