Subject

Adult nursing

Nursing is a rewarding profession caring for individuals throughout their lifespan. At Wrexham Glyndwr University we will prepare you with the knowledge and skills to become a graduate and NMC registered adult nurse.

We pride ourselves on the support and guidance offered to students with an open door approach. Throughout your studies you will have a personal tutor who will support and guide you in your personal and professional development. You will also be supported by a practice educator/mentor whilst you are working in clinical placement.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a non-commissioned course so there is no NHS bursary offered with this programme. However, you may be eligible to apply for a student loan to cover tuition fees.
Placements will be available in Shropshire (Oswestry and Shrewsbury) only for 2020 entry.

Key Course Features:
•Variety of clinical practice placements offered with a number of NHS and Private providers in acute and community setting.
•Strong commitment to personal and professional development of students
•Joint 1st in the UK for graduate prospects and joint 6th in the UK for student satisfaction, Complete University Guide 2020
•Small pre-registration adult cohort student numbers – "The university is small enough for you to be a name not a number," former student Katy Fortune-Probert.
