Course Details


The BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult) programme aims to produce excellent nurses, who are fit for practice and able to meet the key needs of all patient groups. Students will experience an integrated academic and professional training environment conceived and structured to enable you to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills to pursue and sustain a career in contemporary nursing practice. During the initial stages of the programme you will be given more direction and assistance to help you move from being a learner who is dependent, to an autonomous, increasingly reflective and critical individual as your knowledge develops.
