Course Summary

Overview

Adult nurses help care for people over 18 who are ill, injured, or have physical disabilities. They monitor patients' progress and, in conjunction with doctors and other members of the health care team, decide what care to give, as well as advising and supporting patients and their relatives. Although demanding and intense work, it can be exceptionally rewarding.

Our innovative two-year course will prepare you for a career in a wide range of rewarding adult nursing opportunities, including in general medical and surgical wards, as well as specialist units such as Accident and Emergency or intensive care. Many of our graduates take their first posts as qualified practitioners in the NHS Trusts and hospitals in which they gained experience.

Top-up to MSc

After graduating, you'll be able to gain a Masters degree by completing a dissertation. Students who successfully complete the PgDip course have up to four years to complete the dissertation module via part-time study. This will incur an additional cost.

Employability

The course will enable you to develop through a vocational approach to teaching, leading to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
