Course summary

Course description

  • Our nursing programmes are approved to the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) new Future nurse: Standards of Proficiency for registered nurses
  • This is a flexible course with routes to both Postgraduate Diploma and the full MSc possible within just two years of full-time study
  • Both the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc routes lead to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council at the end of the two-year course, as long as you meet the NMC’s requirements
  • You will adopt a person-centred approach to care, develop critical evaluation skills and develop the caring professionalism required to thrive in your career as a nurse
  • Reflecting the postgraduate nature of this degree, you’ll have an increased level of autonomy, with the choice of an option module in the second year
  • The course will equip you with vital nursing skills and our use of clinical supervision throughout the course will enable you to develop resilience and reflective practice.

This course is underpinned by the desire to deliver kind, compassionate nursing care. It is a two year, full-time degree and supports those with a prior degree (2:2 or above) to become a registered nurse at an accelerated pace. You will also need prior work experience in a service user context, allowing you to demonstrate the skills that underpin professional nursing registration. Your prior experiences will contribute to the learning opportunities within the course and together these will provide eligibility to register as a nurse with the NMC, as long as you meet the NMC’s requirements.

The Postgraduate Diploma/MSc Nursing is an intensive course and you will need commitment, motivation and a desire to succeed. The programme holds high expectations that you are engaged and ready to be an independent learner and that you are able to meet the theory and practice hours required by the NMC that reflect a full-time programme of study.

On successful completion of this degree you will be eligible to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and go into practice as a nurse.
