Work Experience and Employment Prospects
Employers value highly and are attracted to international nurses who have gained a Masters degree within the UK. To support employability the course maximises the potential to develop your career within nursing, by offering a “Learning in the workplace” module which includes a period of work experience.
Employer engagement has led to high levels of post-study employment both within the NHS and within the independent sector. In addition many international nursing graduates gain employment in other countries, such as Canada, Australia and the Emirate States. The University runs a number of nursing employer events which are attended by employers from independent, NHS and nursing agencies.
Assessment methods include written assignments mainly based on issues from practice, scenario based role plays and critical literature reviews.
