A career in nursing puts graduates at the forefront of modern healthcare delivery. It is much more than a job – it is a lifelong career in which nurses can develop their skills and interests within a range of specialisms. This degree prepares students for a fulfilling and rewarding career caring for adults of all ages who have had injuries, suffered accidents, acquired disease or have a range of healthcare needs. We equip students with the general and specialist skills required to practise with competence and confidence and excel in the nursing profession. Nurses work in a range of health settings from hospitals and schools to patients’ homes, with the opportunity to work in rural, urban and overseas settings. Students combine theoretical study with clinical experience in a range of settings working with London’s diverse populations in leading hospitals and community settings. Facilities include the Clinical Skills Centre, with state-of-the- art laboratories where students can rehearse practical caring skills prior to their placements and City TECS, a purpose built learning hub, designed to simulate a home environment. City TECS is equipped with the latest telehealth, telecare, telemedicine, tele rehabilitation, mhealth, ehealth, ihealth and wearable technologies. City is the only university in London to have a facility of this kind.
The course is made up of both core and elective modules alongside practice placements in various settings within the NHS. The first year focuses on relationship-centred care and considers the psychological, social and biological factors influencing health. In the second year students continue to explore these themes in the context of acute and long-term care. Students can also pursue specific clinical interests on a two-week elective practice placement in addition to course clinical placements. In the final year, the emphasis is on leading and managing in professional practice, alongside practice placements and the dissertation. Around 50% of your time will be spent on clinical placement.
Ranked first in London for student satisfaction (The Complete University Guide 2017), in the top 15 in the UK for graduate prospects (The Times and Sunday Times University League Table 2017) and among the top four per cent of universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015), City is a leading global institution located in the heart of London committed to academic excellence and focused on business and the professions.
