Course summary

In order to meet the rapidly changing needs and expectations of healthcare environments, this course provides the opportunity for qualified nurses to undertake a top-up degree through distance learning. It aims to prepare you for the next stage in your career and helps you to develop the academic skills required to enhance your practice, as well as implement changes. You will undertake exercises where you will engage with online materials and reflect on your understanding. * This course provides the opportunity for qualified Nurses to undertake a top-up degree through distance learning. It allows you to use your professional qualification and registration to APEL the first year of a degree programme. * As this course is distance learning you are not required to attend the University and can study at a time that meets your own personal and professional commitments. * You will be taught by staff who are actively involved in research and have close links to practice, many of whom have recent experience of doing the job you are training for, so you will have the opportunity to learn from their up-to-date knowledge and skills. * A community of student learners from around the UK and overseas provides opportunities for collaborative learning and experiences. * You will have the opportunity to relate your studies to your own clinical practice. This involves exploring and reflecting upon a range of ideas within healthcare practice, helping you to develop the knowledge required to provide complex care. In 2010, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) amended its required minimum outcome for pre-registration nurse education to degree-level study. As a result, employers will increasingly require their nurses from Band five upwards to hold a degree qualification as a minimum. This course enables qualified practitioners to top-up their qualification to degree level and maximise their opportunities for career progression. This course was designed and validated in conjunction with local employers and provides the opportunity for nurses to gain a post registration degree related to their own professional area. The course incorporates modules that will challenge your understanding of nursing practice. Our graduates have found the course to be very beneficial to their careers, although some had worked in the area for many years, this enabled them to gain a new perspective on their role. ~ Steven Brown, Senior Lecturer, Department of Health Sciences.
