Course description

Adult Nursing has many strengths both as a career and an undergraduate programme. Adult nurses have a unique role in enabling people to improve, maintain, or recover health, and to achieve the best possible quality of life, whatever their disease or disability. Adult Nurses are highly employable, and work in a wide variety of settings and with diverse populations and individuals spanning a wide age range. This means that the Adult Nursing programme itself is varied, using a mixture of placement and University settings to facilitate learning and develop practitioners who are able to work across care sectors, and who can adapt to changing professional roles in response to broader political, social, and economic changes. Students on the Adult Nursing pathway are prepared for the award of BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies (Adult), as well as for entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council Register.

Modules

Core module topics: professional values; communication and interpersonal skills; nursing practice and decision making; leadership, management and team working.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is the subject with the most degree graduates in 2012 - over 14,300. We'll always need nurses in this country, so it's no surprise to see that the very large majority of nursing graduates go on to become nurses, and that starting salaries are pretty competitive. There are lots of different specialties to choose from (including midwifery), and the most common by far is adult nursing, but the typical end result for graduates is the same – they go on to become nurses (or midwives). That’s not to say that you can’t do anything else. Some nursing graduates get other jobs - usually, but not always, in health or caring professions, or management.
