Adult Nursing specialises in caring for and supporting sick and vulnerable adults in a variety of settings, including hospitals, the community and the independent and voluntary sectors. Nursing is a challenging profession, both mentally and physically, which carries a great deal of responsibility. Adult Nurses work with young people who have acute and long term illnesses as well as elderly people with chronic illnesses and injury. They work as part of a multi-disciplinary team alongside doctors, physiotherapists, anaesthetists, pharmacists, dieticians and many others. At Manchester Metropolitan University, we prepare our students for the challenges of practice by providing a comprehensive undergraduate, pre-registration course that is different from usual degree programmes in that it is a 50% theory, 50% practice, real, full time (135 week) programme. Students will be expected to attend according to their schedule and annual leave is set by the programme in order for you to meet the 4600 hours currently required to enter the professional register. We feel that immersing our students in the reality of the profession as they train better prepares them for the challenges of nursing practice upon qualification and develops highly employable, accountable professional nurses. During our programme students will learn how to assess the needs of the patient, communicate effectively with professional colleagues and provide sensitive support for the patient and their families. You will also develop leadership and management skills required to motivate and supervise others. This course leads to registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and also the academic award of BSc(Hons) in Adult Nursing. Our course won best pre-registration Nursing programme at the Student Nursing Times Awards 2013 and 2015 having been a runner up in 2012 and 2016. We continually receive outstanding scores from our students in the NSS.
