Course summary

The Bachelor of Nursing (BN) with Honours programme reflects global, UK and Scottish perspectives of health care. The transfer between health environments and the acute primary care interface is key to understanding the health needs of different populations. Throughout the four years of the programme, you will be introduced to a range of inpatient and community placements and other health-related learning experiences. **Nursing and Midwifery Council education standards** This programme adheres to the new Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) education standards. These standards are designed to embrace the range of nursing practice. This will help prepare you for life at the forefront of the dynamic healthcare environment of the 2020s and beyond. The Bachelor of Nursing with Honours degree prepares nurses for the evolving healthcare landscape.

The equal weighting of theory and practice is a defining feature of the structure of this degree and is required by the NMC. There are three strands of the curriculum which lead you from Year 1 to Year 4, building on previous learning as part of a spiral curriculum. Life sciences, research skills and social sciences are introduced in Year 1 and then build in complexity and depth into year 2 and over the course of the programme. The Honours option courses in Years 3 and 4 allow you to personalise the programme, following your particular interests in different care contexts, approaches or conditions. Clinical skills are developed across all four years, working in the clinical skills laboratory, in nurse-led groups and in a programme of inter-professional learning with medical students. Practice learning is integral to the programme and students learn in a range of practice settings including community, care homes, acute hospital and specialist services. **Study abroad** In Year 3 there is an opportunity for all students to undertake an elective placement which may be abroad or within the UK.
