Course summary

Through this four-year programme, you will learn alongside students from different fields of nursing (Adult, Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Child) and have tailored support to help you achieve the Master's element of the course. As a dual award course, you will spend time on placement in different hospital and clinical settings across the West Midlands area to help you qualify in your chosen fields of nursing - Adult and Child. The course is accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and you will be able to apply for Registered Nurse status in both the Adult and Child fields of nursing on successful completion of the course. The reference to ‘dual award’ indicates the professional NMC dual registration you will be eligible for on successful completion.In the first two years you will study with BSc (Hons) Nursing students on modules with integrated theoretical content, learning about all fields of nursing - Adult, Child, Mental Health and Learning Disabilities. The early part of the course aimed at developing your confidence and competence in working with and caring for people of all ages across the lifespan, with a range of health needs.During the third and fourth year, the course focuses on your dual award. You will take adult and child nursing specific modules aligned to practice placements, which will help to build on your previous learning and develop proficiency in your chosen fields of practice. These modules will help develop you as a leader and critical thinker to apply research-informed, evidence-based care, to plan, evaluate and coordinate care, supervise other health professionals and gain confidence in the safe management of medication. You will also benefit from having personalised, field specific academic and clinical support and bespoke action learning sets to accelerate research-informed evidence-based decision-making. Delivered as 50 per cent theory and 50 per cent practice, the course will provide you with a wide range of experiences, as well as continuous individual support and encouragement from both University personal tutors and clinical mentors. Extracurricular experiences include the opportunity to visit clinical areas in Pittsburgh, USA, and a host of other potential international visits through our Go Abroad scheme, giving you the edge in later job interviews.
