Subject

Adult nursing

Adult Nursing is a highly skilled, knowledgeable and caring profession. As a nurse you are required to provide high quality care to adults, and their families.

Adult Nursing activities encompass promoting health, providing evidence based whole person care while supporting and educating individuals and families both in hospitals and in the community.

You will gain a BSc(Hons) degree in Adult Nursing and be eligible to apply to register as an Adult Nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

It runs over three extended academic years, incorporating core and inter-professional modules and adult field-specific modules. Throughout the course you will develop critical, analytical and reflective skills that will enable you to make sound judgements and provide good evidence-based care.
