Subject

Adult nursing

The aim of this course is to prepare you for the dynamic and fast changing health and social care system, developing you into an adaptable, flexible, reflective, competent and compassionate practitioner.?

From the outset, you’ll gain hands-on experience under supervision from qualified mentors, spending up to 50% of your time on clinical practice placements in a range of healthcare environments within the NHS in hospitals and community placements, at private hospitals and independent care providers.?

While the course has a clear focus on nursing adults, a key benefit of our curriculum is the notion of collaboration across all areas of health and social care. Your studies will be complemented with signi?cant insights into mental health, learning disability and children and young people’s nursing. Some modules are also studied in conjunction with other health and social care professionals; looking at specific issues and challenges they face to broaden your knowledge and expertise.

Our links with universities in Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and Kenya provide opportunities for student exchanges and, through the University’s volunteering schemes, you may have the chance to work overseas on ‘live’ projects such as orphanage work in Uganda. European links are also in development with the potential for field trips to Finland and Spain to compare health courses and nurse training globally. Please note that such opportunities may be subject to additional fees, application process, and meeting applicable visa requirements.

Modules

Yur main study themes are:

**Nursing practice**: Develops the professional values, attitudes and behaviours required to deliver safe and effective, holistic person-centred care. We cover the key concepts of nursing, caring and clinical skills, as well as factors influencing care, for example, National Service Frameworks. Clinical skills acquisition which underpins these care factors will be taught and practiced in the simulated environment of clinical skills laboratories.

**Assessment and care pathways across the lifespan**: Develops the ability to assess, interpret and manage a range of care requirements for service users. You’ll be introduced to the concept of health and wellbeing, enabling an understanding of the bio psychosocial needs of your patient group across the life span in all fields of nursing. You should develop an understanding of how assessments support and inform clinical judgement and decision making in practice, explored across primary, secondary and third sector care environments.

**Evidence informed practice and decision making**: Explores the principles and strategies of Evidence Informed Practice (EIP) to enable you to apply, creatively, a wide range of sources of evidence for clinical decision making. You will be introduced to research perspectives (methodology and design), audit, health policy and service user participation as methods to evaluate your EIP plans and interventions.

**Communications and professionalism**: Communication is highlighted as an essential skill for all health care professionals because it impacts on patient satisfaction. You should develop the key professional attributes incorporating the six ‘C’s model of communication, commitment, courage, care, competence, compassion.
