About Adult Nursing
Masters degrees in Adult Nursing equip postgraduates with the skills to assess, manage, treat and monitor adult patients in a variety of health, clinical and care settings.
Related subjects include Adult-Gerontological Nursing and Nursing Studies, and it’s possible to study these courses either as an MSc or as a PGDip. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Adult Nursing students may go on to work in a number of areas, with specialities including Family Nursing, Community Health Nursing and Gerontological Nursing. You will be trained to work within one of these fields (or more broadly), learning to respond more efficiently to changes in healthcare delivery and emerging healthcare needs.
This typically includes methods such as evidence-based practice, equipping you with the skills to research which areas of clinical care are most effective, assess individual needs and deliver efficient treatment. Courses usually involve a practical placement within a healthcare setting.
Adult nurses work in a range of clinical, community and institutional contexts. You might take up a role as a clinical nurse specialist, administrator or educator. Alternatively, you could become a nurse practitioner in a health centre, school, community centre or prison / rehabilitation unit.
