Course detail

Description

This innovative nursing programme leads to the award of a BSc in Nursing together with professional registration as an Adult nurse. You will learn to care for adults in a variety of care settings including primary healthcare, ambulatory settings, acute medical/surgical units, accident and emergency and critical care. The integration of theory and research-based practice in the classroom and the clinical setting is emphasised throughout the programme.  

The programme provides an academic and practical foundation that will act as a springboard for high quality nursing practice.

Half the programme is spent in clinical practice with placements providing opportunities to develop clinical skills.

Adult nursing students with a particular interest in community nursing may be able to undertake a majority of their clinical practice experience in placements outside of traditional hospital settings. If you are interested in these community nursing opportunities, please include details of your interest in your personal statement.

Teaching style

A comprehensive range of teaching and learning methods are used, each tailored to the particular area of study being undertaken, with simulation playing an increasingly significant role in clinical education. Formal lectures account for only a small proportion of the curriculum. As a Faculty we aim to acknowledge the individuality of our students. Student-centred learning is pivotal to our philosophy and the teaching methods employed encourage and support self development and awareness through reflection on experience. We utilise practitioners, researchers and lecturers to deliver high quality research-based teaching 

Structure of course and assessment

The programmes include an equal balance of theoretical learning and clinical placement with our partner healthcare providers including leading NHS Trusts together with private and voluntary organisations. Programmes are full-time and during clinical practice students work a shift pattern similar to that of the qualified nurse/midwife. A variety of coursework, written and practical exams are used to assess students. Clinical practice is also assessed.

Location

The Faculty is located in the heart of London on the Waterloo Campus on the South Bank of the river Thames. Close links are maintained with the major teaching hospitals and NHS Trusts across London as well as private healthcare providers. Nursing and midwifery students have wide-ranging and unique opportunities to gain experience in some of the most prominent hospitals in London, alongside other areas where healthcare is delivered. This affords students the opportunity to rehearse a wide range of skills, while applying their theoretical learning to practice situations, enabling them to progress their knowledge and understanding of the discipline.

Special notes

Nurses and midwives are involved in caring for vulnerable members of society and there is a necessity for all nursing and midwifery students to have enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks. Prior to commencing the programme you must also have occupational health clearance. Students are not required to pay tuition fees for programmes leading to registration as a nurse or midwife.

 

Structure

  • This new and innovative programme aims to develop nurses who can provide outstanding care across a range of practice settings while meeting all of the registration requirements of the Nursing and Midwifery Council.


    Nursing students undertake a range of modules which focus on quality care, cutting edge clinical skills, professional delivery and the knowledge and skills required to undertake them. You will learn the pivotal roles of the nurse as practitioner partner and leader. There will be a mixture of college based activities which will underpin periods of clinical practice.

    Degree students become increasingly clinically focused in their second year, extending their ability to influence patient care and team working.


  • During this year your modules will become increasingly clinically focussed in your area of practice along with a choice of an additional optional module. Again practice placements will allow you to apply the knowledge gained in your modules in a variety of clinical settings. There is an opportunity for international/national elective placement during the programme.


  • During this year you will undertake further placements to develop your practice as a nurse. In addition you will study a research module and complete a dissertation and other clinically focussed modules which will relate to your practice.
