Course description

Nursing practice in the 21st Century is becoming increasingly demanding. Nurses play a key role, through their work in primary and secondary care settings, restoring and promoting health, supporting patients and their families and profiling healthcare needs of communities. The University of Lincoln recognises the challenges to contemporary and future healthcare and nursing practice. This professionally accredited course provides the opportunity for students to study to become a registered nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. It is designed to prepare graduates to help shape future healthcare provision in the complex, demanding and rewarding area of adult nursing. The aim of the programme is to enable nursing students to become fit for practice in accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Standards for Pre-Registration Nursing Education and to register as a qualified nurse.


Year one modules aim to provide the core foundation skills for nurses to work within health and social care setting. Topics include communication, interpersonal skills and fundamentals nursing skills including caring and compassion. Students are introduced to the principles of professional practice and associated legal, ethical and professional issues. There is an emphasis on acquisition of knowledge and understanding of the human body’s anatomy and physiology. Students can learn and develop essential study and academic skills to enable the effective use of evidence to inform practice. The modules in year two build upon the knowledge and skills gained from year one in relation to the development of professional skills and the application of ethical principles to rational decision-making. In addition the development of knowledge and skills in caring for, co-ordinating and managing care for service users with acute and complex health needs. Contemporary approaches to promoting and enhancing health and wellbeing will be studied. The final year modules again build upon and consolidate the knowledge and skills gained from the previous two years. In addition exploring complex health needs including long – term illness and disability will be studied. Within this final year leadership and nursing management skills will be developed to enable the preparation for the transition from student nurse to an autonomous qualified practitioner. Final project work will focus upon the theory and practice of innovative and transformational change in practice.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
19,890 nursing qualifications were awarded in 2015, making it much the most popular degree in the country. Despite that, we have a serious shortage of nurses - estimates suggest that we're over 20,000 nurses short - that is only set to continue. So it's no surprise to see that the very large majority of nursing graduates go on to become nurses, and that starting salaries are pretty competitive. There are lots of different specialties to choose from (including midwifery), and the most common by far is adult nursing, but the typical end result for graduates is the same — they go on to become nurses (or midwives). That’s not to say that you can’t do anything else. Some nursing graduates get other jobs - usually, but not always, in health or caring professions, or management, and with nurses in such demand, there are always going to be options for you. Do be aware that even this doesn't necessarily guarantee you can get the exact nursing job you want exactly where you want though - some flexibility in type of job and location will still help your career.
