MMedSci Nursing Studies (leading to professional registration as an Adult Nurse)

Course description

MMedSci in Nursing Studies (Adult) leading to professional registration as an Adult Nurse.  The School has been commissioned by the NHS to provide the above course as an innovative route to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as an Adult Nurse.

The course will prepare students to work within the NHS and health and social care sectors as nurses. The course uses an innovative approach to learning alongside other health care professional groups and within health care settings to ensure that students develop the competence for effective practice, and the knowledge and confidence to progress their careers effectively following qualification. Instead of sitting in a lecture theatre, you’ll work on solutions to specific problems. This helps you develop the skills and the confidence you need. You’ll study alongside other health care professionals in a health care setting. You’ll learn how to critically evaluate current research, policies and practice. By linking theory to practice, you’ll develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge appropriate for professional registration as an adult nurse.

Course Aims

  1. To enable students to engage critically in current research, policy and practice in the field of Adult nursing and develop a range of clinical skills and knowledge commensurate with entry to the professional register.
  2. To enable students to critically appraise and evaluate the theoretical and empirical elements of nursing, developing academic skills linking theory to practice
  3. To provide an environment which develops students' leadership and problem solving skills in contemporary health care settings

Central location

You'll be based near the Medical School, the Health Sciences Library and central University facilities like our 24-hour study centre the Information Commons.

It also means you'll be in the hub of Sheffield student life. You'll have popular student areas like West Street and Broomhill on your doorstep, along with the best students' union in the country.

Teaching

This course uses an innovative problem-based learning strategy to help you think about real clinical practice scenarios. A strong emphasis on cooperative learning helps you manage unfamiliar situations, make reasoned decisions, adapt to change, and plan your future learning. It’s a realistic and challenging preparation for registration.

Assessment

You’re assessed on theory and practice. In practice, you’ll need to achieve a number of competencies by the end of each unit, assessed by your clinical mentor. Your theoretical knowledge is assessed by written assignments, case studies, poster presentations and exams.
