Subject

Adult nursing

**Split your time 50:50 between being on campus and on placement – learning to give person-centred care that makes a real difference to real patients.**

At Hull we don't just teach the theory. We go beyond the classroom, in simulated operating theatres, hospital wards and intensive care facilities, as well as on clinical placements, to give you the skills, experience and support to become a confident and compassionate professional health practitioner.

- Learn in our £28-million new Health Campus with its simulated hospital wards and operating theatres.

- 100% of our students are in work or further study six months after graduating (UK domicile full-time first degree leavers; Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, for the academic year 2016/17 published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency 2018).

- Our courses are approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the College of Operating Department Practitioners and the Health and Care Professions Council.

- A 50/50 split between time spent in classes and on mentored clinical placements.

- Career opportunities across the UK’s NHS trusts – and internationally, in places such as New Zealand.

During this course you’ll learn to provide care to a range of adults – differing in age and health needs – and gain an extra dimension to your nursing experience. On graduation ,you'll be able to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified registered nurse.

**Official Team GB partners**

Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it.

What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership.

We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else.
