The Course

Summary

Studying Adult Nursing at the University of Suffolk is an excellent choice for someone looking for a fulfilling and rewarding career. You will be made to feel welcome from the first day by friendly, enthusiastic and committed staff. You will be studying in a modern learning environment, being taught by experts. We will help you to become someone who will make a difference. University of Suffolk nurses are informed, enthusiastic, motivated and competent Registered Nurses. Our Pre-Registration Adult Nursing course sits within the Department of Health Sciences and has the 6 C’s of nursing and the NHS Values at its heart. The Department of Health Sciences is committed to embedding these values into everything we do.

Base sites are used for clinical practice placements and some theoretical sessions. Clinical placements offer the opportunity to gain a variety of practice experiences, typically offering the following areas/specialities: Community Nursing; Acute wards in NHS Trust Hospitals; Specialist care areas; Out-patient departments; Placements in the voluntary and private sector. While in practice you will be allocated a mentor and, as the course is full-time, this equates to 37.5 hours per week. Practice placements are comprised of a variety of shift patterns; long days (12.5 hours), early, late and night shifts.  At times you will also be expected to work weekends to ensure that you spend the maximum amount of time with your mentor.

Career includes: Following qualification, the opportunities for registered adult nurses are vast. A wide variety of positions will be open to you in England and abroad. With the increasing emphasis on nursing people in the community, the opportunities are continuing to grow and we are seeing high levels (97%) of graduate recruitment within the East of England. A very large percentage of students who qualify are employed locally, straight form the course. This can be straight into community settings as well as in the hospital. Students can choose to go on to specialise within their chosen field of practice or perhaps they may wish to undertake their mentorship qualification and begin to support students in practice themselves. Following qualification as an adult nurse, opportunities for further training in mentorship, health visiting, school nursing and midwifery are also available in partnership with the University.
