PGDip Adult Nursing (with professional registration)


Course Description

Throughout the course you will develop your knowledge and understanding of the art and science of adult nursing. Communication and team working are key in health and social care and you will develop a range of interpersonal skills that enable you to work effectively with a wide diversity of clients and within complex settings.

You will rehearse practical skills in our skills suites, allowing you to integrate your theory into practice in a safe environment. You will also experience at least 2,300 hours of placements which is required by the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC); because of this requirement, the course duration is a minimum of three years to ensure you gain this valuable experience. The health economy is rapidly changing and future nurses are likely to be located in a broader range of workplaces. Your placement opportunities will therefore be in a diverse range of settings which include the growing independent sector as well as care within the community, preparing you to function effectively and meet the health care needs of an increasing ageing population.

This is a pre-registration nursing course that has been adapted for those students who already have a degree. We also offer a BSc (Hons) in Adult Nursing if you don't have a degree. Students on this PG Dip course will work alongside the BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing students; however some units will be grouped with other PG Dip students from other nursing pathways, and your academic tutor will focus on your individual development at Master's level.
