BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing

Adult nursing is a challenging yet extremely rewarding career, where you will work with a diverse range of acute and long-term illnesses in adults, in addition to promoting healthy lifestyles for all. Adult nurses play a prominent role in hospitals and communities as part of a multi-professional team. They care for patients and clients in a variety of hospital and primary care settings. These include acute medical and surgical wards, operating theatres, Emergency Departments, high-dependency environments, nursing homes and district nursing. During clinical placements, students promote health maintenance and restoration.

We prepare you to apply for registration as a nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
