The Adult Nursing programme focuses upon the healthcare needs of people aged 16 years and over. Clinical placements range from caring for clients with acute care needs in a hospital setting to the longerterm needs of a client within the community setting.

This programme provides opportunities to explore the concepts of health and ill health within the adult population. There is an emphasis on developing a clear understanding of research and its application in the care of service users. You will develop an extensive range of skills, including rational decision making, critical thinking, physical assessment and effective communication, whilst working in both practice and university settings.

The clinical simulation suite provides the opportunity to practise skills using clinical equipment, simulators and audiovisual aids within a supportive learning environment. Working within an interprofessional learning environment, practice partners and tutors will facilitate a wide range of clinical scenarios, providing opportunities to experience the practice setting and develop skills within a safe environment.

Clinical practice takes place in a variety of care settings, supported by mentors and practice liaison tutors. Placement experiences may be within NHS, private or charity organisations and may include medical and surgical environments, high dependency, older people’s services and community placements. Opportunities to gain insights into other fields of nursing, including child, mental health and learning disability, are supported through the All Field Learning Experience. There is also the opportunity for national and international clinical placements.

This programme aims to develop an autonomous reflective practitioner who has empathic qualities, is committed to delivering high-quality care to service users and identifies appropriate strategies to empower individuals to maximise their own independence.

Career opportunities

Nursing is the largest healthcare profession in the country and nurses play a role in the delivery of most healthcare services. Although many qualified nurses work in hospitals, they can also work in general practice surgeries, community settings, home healthcare, outpatient day surgeries, nursing homes, schools, mental health agencies, hospices, the military and industry.

Many of our graduates are initially employed by the NHS Trust in which they had their practice experience, before going on to further studies and employment opportunities. Some nurses develop careers in education or research, promoting advances in many areas of healthcare and health promotion practice.
