Subject

Older people nursing

This three-year course is designed to produce nursing graduates who will have the skills to respond to the changing needs of adults who require nursing care within a variety of rapidly changing healthcare environments.

Successful students will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) which will permit them to practice as a Registered Nurse (Adult) in the United Kingdom.

We have delivered nursing programmes for over 30 years and our courses provide excellence in teaching and research with innovative approaches to learning.

Career prospects for our nursing graduates are excellent, with the majority moving rapidly into posts within the NHS and independent sectors. Areas include hospital, community, acute care, rehabilitation, elderly care and specialist practice nursing.

The University regularly ‘refreshes’ courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University calls this process 'academic revalidation’. This course is currently being ‘refreshed’, with changes put in place for students entering from September 2017 onwards. For the most up-to-date course/ module information, please contact the Course Director .
