The MSc Nursing with Registration (Adult) is for graduates from every academic discipline, from Accounting to Zoology, who want to become a qualified adult nurse and gain a master-level qualification.

This is a stimulating and challenging programme, integrating theory and practice in the discipline of nursing. Clinical nursing practice is at the centre of the programme and takes place in a variety of settings in the Leeds area. It includes regional healthcare specialities, such as renal, liver, neurology and cardiac.

You’ll study at the University campus and through our Virtual Learning Environment. You’ll experience a variety of different field-specific clinical placements, including acute and long-term settings, and will care for people in hospital and in the community.

Accreditation

Students who successfully complete this programme will be able to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC)

Course content

The first year of the course is designed to introduce you to theoretical knowledge, skills and attitudes required for clinical practice. Underpinning subjects, such as biology, sociology, psychology, communication and the theory and practice of nursing, are taught via a level 3 (degree level) module. You spend time in clinical practice in this year, where you'll develop a number of nursing skills and apply your theoretical knowledge.

Over the next two years of the programme you'll further develop your knowledge and skills, but more specifically in relation to adult nursing. The first module of this year will be at level 3, but all remaining modules will be at Master’s level. You study modules specific to nursing, as well as more generic leadership and research modules. You’ll have access to modern School of Healthcare facilities.

There is the opportunity to study an optional module from a menu centred on either research, advanced practice or management. The optional modules include the opportunity to have an observational placement abroad.

Clinical experience

Clinical experience during the programme will include some weekend and night duty shifts to meet the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recommendations. Time is also given in the programme for independent study and assessment preparation.

Holidays are allocated for the whole three years to meet University and NMC regulations and cannot be negotiated. We make every effort to link these to school holidays at Christmas, Easter and in August.

The programme will provide you with:

  • An opportunity to gain and develop a vast range of theoretical nursing knowledge and practical skills through taught sessions and attendance in clinical practice.

Summary

This innovative programme equips nurses with the knowledge to add prescribing to their suite of skills. It permits nurses the opportunities to pursue challenging study in the subject areas of ethics, law and all aspects of pharmacotherapeutics as they apply to Non-Medical Prescribing.

This will both advance practice and promote patient safety and quality of care. Nurses working in a range of professional teams will find the appeal of becoming a V300 prescriber, an essential component of promoting professional accountability and patient empowerment.

About

This course consists of three modules of study to gain the professional and academic awards. You will study pharmacotherapeutics, the study of all aspects of drugs, how they work and interact and the physiological basis to prescribing. You will explore the legal and ethical basis of sound prescribing in practice, within the professional and statutory frameworks. You will also become proficient in physical and mental health assessment. You will compile a professional workbook to demonstrate the acquistion of prescribing competencies, and spend time in clinical practice refining and developing prescribing and health assessment skills. You will be mentored by an experienced doctor and gain experience with other non-medical prescribers during the course of the programme.

This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.

The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.

Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.

Heart patients come to the University twice a week and are involved in our research, which currently includes a UK study to look at the benefits of high intensity training to heart health.

We are currently seeking accreditation to allow students to register for the BACPR exercise instructor training qualification, permitting them to work directly with cardiac patients undertaking structured exercise training programmes in the UK.

The programme is available at postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma and masters level. It is designed to allow flexible study to enable professionals to continue working
