Through access to practice learning opportunities, you will enhance your personal and professional values and beliefs and develop into a highly competent, resilient and empowered second registrant. You will graduate eligible to register as a qualified adult nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to help plan, coordinate and deliver care in a safe, compassionate and effective way.

Career Prospects

What are my career prospects?

You will graduate with an academic and professional qualification in adult nursing, building on your existing registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. This will open an assortment of fascinating career opportunities across both fields of practice.

Adult nurses deliver care to clients with a diverse range of health conditions. While it is difficult to truly capture the breadth and variety of working life as an adult nurse, typical duties might include physical examinations and clinical assessments, monitoring patients and recording their clinical condition, administering medication and injections, responding quickly to emergencies, and acting as an advocate for patients and their families. Adult nurses also support people with their wider nutritional, physical, hygiene and emotional needs.

Nursing and Midwifery Council registration is recognised the world over and following registration you can pursue a career in a variety of settings, including the NHS, private, voluntary and independent sectors. Career opportunities also include clinical practice, research, leadership, management and education. There are significant opportunities for further professional development and specialism, including the opportunity to progress to a Masters degree through the completion of a 60-credit dissertation.
