Subject

Adult nursing

Immerse yourself in a physically, intellectually and emotionally challenging course that will prepare you for a rewarding career.

Spending 50 per cent of your time on practice placements, you will develop the practical skills needed to care for adults with acute and long-term illnesses across a variety of settings.

You will come to understand your obligations in terms of your professional behaviour and conduct, and develop the expertise and confidence needed to become a registered nurse responsible for leading and coordinating care. Learning alongside students studying related healthcare professions such as physiotherapy, social work and dietetics will give you a wider understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of care provision.
