Course summary

**Course overview**Please note we are now closed to new applications for January 2022 entry.Nurses are the professional face of healthcare, the calm voice explaining a procedure. They are the go-to figures providing unwavering support, the ones ensuring patient safety and giving care no matter what the circumstances.We’ve designed our MSc Adult Nursing (Pre-registration) course around the core values of the NHS constitution so that you understand what’s required in caring for and supporting vulnerable adults.Our MSc Pre-registration course is an accelerated postgraduate programme developed for those who have already graduated with an undergraduate degree. You'll gain the experience and skills required to practice as an Adult Nurse in two years, rather than the traditional three-year route.Our aim is to make sure we prepare you for the challenges you may face and develop the expertise you’ll need to become a leader in nursing. You’ll learn how to assess your patient’s needs and provide sensitive support, and how to collaborate with colleagues across a range of professions (including doctors, physiotherapists and dieticians).You’ll spend half of your time on clinical placements in a variety of settings, with support from a practice supervisor/assessor throughout. This may include an operating theatre, accident and emergency, a community health centre, an intensive care unit, an outpatients department or a nursing home.When you're on campus you'll be based in our award-winning Brooks building, equipped with hospital-standard, specialist health facilities and simulation technology.Working in small groups in our Clinical Simulation Suite, you’ll learn many skills to support the development of your practice. It’s here that you’ll work on simulations of a patient’s journey from admission to discharge.All of our teaching team in the Department of Nursing are registered nurses, health visitors or advanced practitioners or have been at some point in their career. Many have won awards in their own specialist areas and are recognised and respected in the region and nationally for their contributions. Our Nursing department has been recognised in the Student Nursing Times Awards and the Guardian League Tables which celebrate the very best in student nurses and nursing education.To fund your postgraduate pre-registration nursing degree, you'll be able to access standard student loans in line with undergraduate funding for pre-registration courses. **Features and benefits**- **Approved course** - This course is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).- **Accelerated course** - An accelerated postgraduate pathway into professional nursing practice, you'll gain the experience and skills required to practice as a registered nurse in two years, rather than three.- **Become a registered nurse** - As a graduate, you’re eligible to register as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).- **Outstanding nursing facilities** - We have well equipped clinical skills lab complete with computerised sim-man manikins, used to demonstrate both basic and challenging conditions and nursing interventions.- **Taught by experts and clinicians still in practice** - All of our teaching team in the Department of Nursing are registered nurses, health visitors or advanced practitioners.
