Course summary

Nursing provides a wide range of opportunities resulting in interesting and varied learning experiences. Nurses are based within multi-disciplinary teams, working alongside individuals, families, friends and other supportive networks. Teams provide collaborative care and support in hospitals, homes and in the community. It is essential that you enjoy working and communicating with people of all ages and backgrounds and that you respect people’s rights, beliefs and values. The BSc Nursing programme extends over three years and the BSc Honours Nursing over four years. Each academic year runs over 45 weeks and has an equal balance of theoretical and practice learning. This contemporary and innovative programme facilitate the achievement of competencies required for registration in the UK as a nurse within the adult field of practice. It will help students develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that are essential to deliver safe, compassionate, respectful, ethical and effective care in an evolving and dynamic health and social care environment. Utilising a blended approach to learning, key subject areas studied include learning to learn, health, social and behavioural sciences, communication, ethics and essential caring skills. The programme will include topics common to all areas of generic nursing and those specific to adult or mental health nursing. This means that some classes will be shared whilst others will concentrate on your chosen field. Assessments in both theory and practice will be undertaken in each semester. These require to be passed before progressing to the next semester. A mental health nursing degree from the University of Stirling will prepare you to meet the needs of a modern profession and to provide the best possible patient care. You will leave us as a confident and capable practitioner, fully equipped to join a health care team on graduation.
