Accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Council, and with a very high student satisfaction rate, our course in Adult Nursing expertly blends theory with real-world experience – giving you all the skills needed to feel confident working as a nurse with adult patients in a variety of settings.
As well as acquiring a universal knowledge of the profession from highly qualified and experienced practitioners, you’ll focus on practising the core practical skills required to become a competent practitioner. Our interactive learning facilities and simulation suites replicate a range of clinical and community environments and allow you to perform various techniques in a safe and controlled setting.
When you’ve acquired the theory and practical skills on campus, you’ll be ready to experience life in placements, which forms 50% of your course curriculum. Your placements will see you work in a number of exciting and diverse locations, from NHS hospitals to care homes, private clinics to community nursing teams, giving you the experience you need to grow in both confidence and competence. What’s more, each year we host a Nursing Careers Fair with numerous exhibitors in attendance, who in the past have offered students jobs on the spot.
