The BN adult nursing degree is a three year course that gives you all the elements you need to be a top professional in this field.

Courses like this represent the future of training for nurses.

That’s because university graduates are better at critical thinking and reflective practice. Plus they have greater leadership qualities too.

As a BN graduate you’ll be able to register to practise with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, which regulates the profession.

By then you will be capable of organising and coordinating care across a range of practice settings.

Programme structure

The BN adult nursing degree course is set out as half theory and half practice to ensure proper preparation and assessment in both areas.

Practice placements give you the practical experience you need to grow in both confidence and competence.

You will complete your placements in hospitals, as well as in the community; giving you a broad sense of your role as a nurse.

At the same time theoretical based learning will give you more knowledge and greater powers of analysis.

Both these branches of learning are vital to your chances of success.

Career opportunities

Nurses have more contact with patients than any other member of a medical team.

As a practising nurse you will be the central support system for patients recovering from acute and long-term illnesses.

However, graduates with degrees in adult nursing can also find themselves working in specialist areas such as: intensive care, theatre and recovery, cancer care, or care of older people.

It is a career that offers many opportunities to work around the globe, as well as here at home, in the richest variety of roles and with many exciting challenges.

Most of our graduates pursue employment with the NHS. However, the diverse nature of nursing means that they could also enjoy opportunities with the police, social work, or even the armed forces.

In 2013 an incredible 100% of our nursing graduates went straight into work or further study within six months.

That’s partly because employers know that we are committed to the future of healthcare learning. For example, our BN nursing degrees were the first in the country to get NMC approval in 2011.
