Course description

Successful completion of this course allows you registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified (registered) nurse. You can specialise in one of four fields of nursing: adult, mental health, children, or learning disabilities. Youâ??ll study with students from all fields of nursing and other professions, as well as sessions specific to your field. Thereâ??s also the requirement to work with clients and patients from other fields, which enables you to care for patients with multiple and complex needs. Each year of the course lasts a minimum of 42 weeks. Thereâ??s an equal split between theory and practice, which is integrated throughout the course. Supervised placements are an integral part of the programme. These are in our partner health boards, as well as community and independent clinical placements. When you are working with your mentor in clinical practice, you have to work the shift patterns of the clinical area you are allocated.
