About adult nursing

Adult nursing is a person-centred profession with the primary aim of promoting the wellbeing and social inclusion of all people through improving or maintaining physical and mental health. Adult nurses provide care for people over the age of 18 and increasingly for older people with complex conditions. They may also care for people with a mental health condition, learning disability or children. Adult nurses work in a range of settings including A&E, critical care, medical and surgical wards, rehabilitation units, GP practices, healthcare centres, hospices and in people's own homes.

What will you study?

The first year is divided into two parts. In part one you will undertake a bridging module introducing you to the foundations of nursing and healthcare. In part two you will look at the context of nursing within a variety of client groups within your specific field of nursing.

In your second year (part three) you will learn about the analysis and application of research and evidence base and the complexities of nursing at an individual and organisational level as well as preparing for your transition to registered nurse.

Assessment
