Course description

At Worcester we promote the values of the NHS Constitution and develop professional, flexible and responsive nursing graduates, who are not only caring and compassionate, treating individuals with dignity and respect, but who are self-aware, reflective practitioners who have the ability to think critically. The Pre-Registration Nursing degree programme acknowledges that nursing is a practice-based, academic and professional discipline. Our curriculum is designed and delivered in partnership with local health providers and with those who use health services through our strong service user and carer network. You will gain practice experience in a range of health settings supported by qualified nurse mentors. The changing demands on health services means that future nurses will need to be politically astute and innovative, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, who seek to work in partnership with, and empower, service users and their families and who are motivated to take a lead in quality healthcare developments and initiatives. These are the characteristics that we develop in our students.

Modules

Modules include: Occupational therapy practice skills and self-leadership; introduction to foundation sciences for occupational therapists; interpersonal skills, values and self awareness for health professions; professional practice for occupational therapists 1; applied sciences for occupational therapists; professional practice for occupational therapists 2; research and evidence based practice for health professionals; team working and leadership for health professionals; exploring professional diversity; enhancing employability; leadership and management; independent study; professional practice for occupational therapists 3.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This is the subject with the most degree graduates in 2012 - over 14,300. We'll always need nurses in this country, 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.
