The BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing degree prepares students for a fulfilling and rewarding career at the forefront of of modern healthcare, caring for adults of all ages who have suffered accidents and been injured, acquired infections and developed diseases or have a range of healthcare needs. Upon successful completion, graduates are eligible to apply for professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

City students benefit from clinical placements at London’s leading healthcare Trusts. Placements will occur in settings including hospital wards, specialist units, community and rapid response teams, acute and emergency departments, GP practices and within patients’ homes. This range of placements helps students develop the skills and confidence to deal with the many different environments Adult Nurses work in.

This course is taught through a combination of classroom theory, simulated practice and clinical placements. Simulated practice takes place at our state of the art Clinical Skills Centre, a facility designed especially for students to practice their skills in a safe environment.

Career prospects are excellent for City BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing graduates, with many securing employment within leading Healthcare trusts; Barts Health NHS Trust, Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is currently in the process of revising its educational standards, which will affect courses starting from 2019. Therefore some aspects of this course will be updated to meet the required standards, please check our website for the latest information.

Modules

The first year focuses on relationship-centred care and considers the psychological, social and biological factors influencing health. Students are required to undertake a practice placement. Modules include; Foundations of Relationship Centred Practice and Relating Social Sciences to Healthy Communities.

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. Students can choose one elective module to study alongside core modules. Elective modules include; Work based /work focused project and Infection Prevention and Control.

In the final year, the emphasis is on leading and managing in professional practice. Students undertake a dissertation. As part of the clinical placement experience, students spend the final 12 weeks of the course in practice and have a placement base and opportunities to identify practice experiences with their mentor.

Assessment methods

Students are assessed using a variety of methods, depending on module choices:
- Practice Assessment Document (PAD): used to demonstrate achievement of practice competencies and also to record the number of hours of practice experience
- Written assignments, including essays: these may take the form of care studies.
- Written examinations.
- Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCEs): practical skills assessments.
- Dissertation: this final project enables students to choose a relevant topic of interest and demonstrate an in depth knowledge of this.
