Course content

You can train to be a fully qualified adult nurse in two years if you have already completed an honours degree, preferably in a health-related subject. After completing the course, you are able to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as a qualified adult nurse.

Practice-based learning is central to your development and you spend 45 weeks of your course on placement. You gain experience in a diverse range of adult nursing settings, such as caring for acutely ill adults in their own homes.

Placements are across South Yorkshire and the Humber, in some of the UK’s leading healthcare providers. On your placements, you are assigned a qualified and experienced adult nurse as a mentor. They support you and make sure you are comfortable in your surroundings, so you make the most of the experience.

You work with old and young adults with critical and acute health care needs. Adult nurses also assist with longer term and palliative care requirements. Work may be based in hospital wards, clinics or community settings.

You also gain insight in to other fields of nursing during the course.

We provide modern facilities to help you develop clinical skills and specialist knowledge for your career. You study in our £13 million purpose-built Robert Winston Building on our Collegiate Crescent Campus, in clinical suites that include a mock ward and operating theatre, replicate the hospital and community settings in which you learn and work. This makes it easier to take what you’ve learnt in the University out into the real world with confidence.

After you graduate from this course, you'll have the clinical nursing knowledge and the interpersonal and management skills, vital for effective patient care.

Nursing careers offer excellent benefits with an attractive starting salary and real career prospects. Few professions offer such job satisfaction and at the same time make a difference to people's lives.

As a nurse you may remain directly involved with patient care in settings including • health centres • GP surgeries • the armed forces • prisons • the community. This can lead to you becoming a nurse specialist or consultant and an expert in your chosen area.

Once you are an experienced nurse you may decide to specialise in a clinical area or concentrate on teaching or research.
