The primary aim of the programme is to support students as they progress towards registered practitioner level and beyond, and to provide a framework within which they can acquire and demonstrate both generic transferable competencies and those specific to their area of practice.
This postgraduate nursing programme is designed for graduates from other disciplines who wish to gain professional registration in Adult, Children's or Mental Health Nursing. The programme runs over two years.
The programme focuses on quality care, cutting edge clinical skills and is designed to be both research intensive and research informed. You will learn the pivotal roles of nurse and client, while developing your nursing skills and building your knowledge of professional and ethical practice. This innovative programme ensures our students meet the registration requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Subjects such as nursing bioscience, professional practice, research, evidence-based practice, policy and clinical leadership, as well as adult, children's or mental health nursing are studied. The programme is divided between theoretical modules and clinical practice, with blocks of time spent in clinical placement.
You will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of healthcare settings. Opportunities for national and international electives are also offered.
EXTRA PROGRAMME INFORMATION
All students on nursing programmes are required to undertake an enhanced CRB check and all must give consent to this. Completed CRB checks must be received prior to the student undertaking any clinical placement. All students attend Occupational Health (OH) on entry the programme. All applicants are required to make an APEL claim. Pre-registration nursing programmes should normally be no less than three years. However, the use of APEL permits us to offer a programme of two years duration to those applicants who can show evidence of prior learning relevant to the programme.
