**About This Course**

Adult nursing is a fantastic career choice if you are committed, compassionate and keen to support and work in partnership with adults of all ages. It can be as varied or specialised as you choose. Whichever route you take, at UEA you will receive the very best education so that you can go on to provide the very best care.

You will join a supportive and dynamic community of students, who will go on to become sought-after healthcare professionals.

We are ranked 5th in the UK for nursing (The Complete University Guide 2019) and the course is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC].

**Overview**

On a BSc in Adult Nursing at UEA, you will combine first-hand clinical experience with academic study.

You will gain the skills, experience and knowledge required to prepare you for essential adult nursing practice as well as specialist areas such as people living with long-term and complex conditions. This includes conditions and challenges specific to adults in a variety of settings, and will encompass caring for patients with diverse mental health needs and those with learning disabilities. This inclusive approach to adult nursing will ensure that you can help meet the needs of the UK’s diverse adult population.

In addition to learning how to look after adults who are unwell, you will also learn how to support patients in developing and maintaining healthy lifestyles, contributing to their health and wellbeing throughout adulthood.

We encourage you to learn through hands-on practical experience, working in collaboration with other healthcare students. This means you’ll gain unique insights into other professional perspectives, helping you to cultivate the collaborative and adaptable approach that is essential to a successful nursing career.

Your studies will be split 50/50 between theory and practice. You’ll develop a robust understanding of the evidence base and skills required to provide optimum care. And you’ll gain hands-on experience across a range of placements in both acute and community settings, acquiring the skills and experience critical to safe and effective nursing practice.

With the NHS Constitution at its core, our Adult Nursing degree provides rigorous training, fantastic placement opportunities and is fully approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
